      What is Psoriasis?

      Psoriasis is a chronic, non-contagious skin condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It’s characterised by formation of thick, red, raised and scaly patches on the skin’s surface which can be itchy as well. These patches, often referred to as plaques, can appear anywhere on the body but are commonly found on the elbows, knees, scalp, trunk, face, palm and soles of feet.

      Psoriasis is not just a skin disorder; it’s an autoimmune disease, which means it involves the body’s immune system mistakenly attacking the healthy skin cells. The condition can vary in severity, with some individuals experiencing mild, occasional flare-ups, while others may have more persistent and severe symptoms.

      Types of Psoriasis

      1. Guttate Psoriasis: teardrop shaped spots that appear red or bright pink color majorly on torso, limbs and back.
      2. Pustular Psoriasis: This can affect whole body and are characterized by small blisters which are filled with yellow or white fluids.
      3. Nail Psoriasis: It is extremely painful and affects toenails and nails.
      4. Scalp Psoriasis: It appears as dandruff like flakes on scalp can result in hair thinning also.
      5. Plaque Psoriasis: this happens as buildup of skin cells on any body area i.e; formation of plaques
      6. Inverse or Flexural Psoriasis: It happens majorly in skin folds, armpits, face or genitals.

      Signs of Psoriasis

      • Soreness on the skin leading to burning sensations.
      • Scaly patches and flare-ups can happen in children.
      • Extremely dry skin with cracks and itching or bleeding.
      • There may be red skin lesions that become covered with silvery thick scales.
      • Nails can become thick, pitted, or ridged.
      • Rarely few patients can develop inflexible swollen joints.

      Causes of Psoriasis

      ● Genetic predisposition: One of the most significant risk factors for psoriasis is having a family history of the condition. Certain genes have been identified that increase the likelihood of developing psoriasis.
      Immune system dysfunction: Psoriasis is fundamentally an immune system disorder. In individuals with psoriasis, the immune system becomes overactive, causing an inflammatory response in the skin, which leads to the accelerated growth of skin cells.
      ● It may be associated with a metabolic syndrome that can increase risk of cardiovascular disease, hypertension, heart stroke, type 2 diabetes or intolerance towards glucose.
      ● Genetic or environmental factors that causes malfunctioned immune system and hence results in psoriasis includes Dry/Cold Weather, Heavy alcohol consumption, Emotional stress, some medications like anti-malarial drug/ High BP medicines, Obesity, Cutaneous trauma, Smoking, Skin infections etc.

      Treatments for Psoriasis at Dr. Haror's Wellness

      Dr. Haror’s Wellness is dedicated to providing comprehensive and personalized treatments for psoriasis, aiming to improve the quality of life for those affected. Our treatment options may include:

      Topical creams and ointments: These are applied directly to affected areas and can help reduce inflammation and scaling. These can be used in the form of ointments, gels, lotions, or creams. This can be Vitamin D analogs to reduce skin regeneration and anti-inflammatory products like coal tar in oils, shampoos, or creams (this helps reduce itching also). Calcineurin inhibitors help reduce plaques. Topical Retinoids can also be applied. We recommend using these medications under the supervision of a dermatologist.
      Phototherapy (light therapy): Controlled exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light, under medical supervision, can slow the growth of skin cells and reduce inflammation.
      Systemic medications: For moderate to severe cases, injectable steroids that affect the immune system may be prescribed to manage psoriasis.
      Lifestyle modifications and stress management: Our approach goes beyond traditional medical treatments and includes guidance on stress reduction and lifestyle changes to help minimize psoriasis symptoms. Avoid triggers like alcohol, smoking, and sun exposure. Have a balanced diet including pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds, sunflower seeds, leafy vegetables, iron, selenium, omega 3 fatty acids, etc. Avoid red meat, refined sugars, and junk foods. Avoid gluten as it can increase inflammation.
      Biologic therapies for severe cases: Biologics are targeted therapies that are either injected or IV-infused. The most commonly used one is secukinumab.

      It is always advisable to consult your dermatologist for the right diagnosis and best treatment plan to manage such skin conditions. We at Dr. Haror’s Wellness specialize in providing optimum care and result-oriented treatments.
