What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is an immune-mediated disease that causes inflammation in the body. There may be visible signs of the inflammation such as raised plaques (plaques may look different for different skin types) and scales on the skin. This occurs because the overactive immune system speeds up skin cell growth. Normal skin cells completely grow and shed (fall off) in a month. With psoriasis, skin cells do this in only three or four days. Instead of shedding, the skin cells pile up on the surface of the skin. Some people report that psoriasis plaques itch, burn and sting. Plaques and scales may appear on any part of the body, although they are commonly found on the elbows, knees, and scalp.

Psoriasis Signs and Symptoms can vary from person to person. Common signs and Symptoms include:

  • Red patches of skin covered with thick, silvery scales
  • Small scaling spots
  • Dry, cracked skin that may bleed or itch
  • Itching, burning or soreness
  • Thickened, pitted or ridged nails
  • Swollen and stiff joints

How Can You Treat Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a chronic disease that flares up and subsides intermittently. While there is no cure for psoriasis there are many ways to manage the symptoms.Treatments to manage symptoms include:

  1. Topical creams and gels
  2. Light Therapy
  3. Oral and Injected Medications

Topical treatments and light therapy are typically reserved for milder instances of psoriasis. Medication is typically used in the strongest cases, when psoriasis has not responded adequately to these first two treatments.

FAQ for Psoriasis Treatment in Hyderabad

What are the Signs & Symptoms of  Psoriasis? 

The signs and symptoms of psoriasis can vary from one to one. Common signs and symptoms include:

  • Red spots of skin covered with thick, silvery scales
  • Small scale removal spots (mostly seen in children)
  • Dry, cracked skin that can cause bleed or itch
  • Itching, burning, or pain
  • Thickened, pitted, or ridged nails
  • Swollen and stiff joints

Psoriasis plaques can range from a few dandruff-like scaly patches to major rashes that cover enormous areas. The most commonly affected areas are the lower back, elbows, knees, legs, soles, scalp, face, and palms.

What are the Types of psoriasis?

Psoriasis can occur in a number of clinical patterns. These are:

  • Chronic plaque: The most common type, chronic plaque usually appears on the knees, elbow and scalp. Symptoms include red or pink inflamed patches of skin with white scaling
  • Sebopsoriasis: this is similar to scalp psoriasis but can occur on the armpits, chest, face or groin
  • Erythrodermic: this extensive form of psoriasis can cover more than 90% of the skin
  • Flexural: flexural psoriasis causes red, raw areas of skin in the armpits, groin or under the breasts
  • Guttate: this type of psoriasis causes multiple small spots of psoriasis that erupt on the torso after an illness or sore throat
  • Palmoplantar pustular : with this type of psoriasis, inflamed spots filled with pus appear on the soles and palms
  • Pustular: this is the most severe form of psoriasis and causes red, tender skin lesions with pus-filled pots

How is psoriasis diagnosed?

Because psoriasis can resemble other skin diseases, doctors sometimes find it difficult to diagnose it. Health care providers may need to use a microscope to examine a small skin sample before confirming a diagnosis.

In many cases, there is a family history of psoriasis. Researchers who have studied a large number of families affected by psoriasis have identified genes linked to the disease. People with psoriasis may notice times when their skin worsens, called flares, before improving. Infections, stress, and weather changes can cause flares. Also, certain medicines may trigger an outbreak or worsen the disease.

How is psoriasis treated?

Doctors generally treat psoriasis in steps based on the severity of the disease, size of the areas involved, type of psoriasis, and where the psoriasis is located. Options can include:

  • Medicines applied to the skin (topical treatment)
  • Light treatment (phototherapy)
  • Medicines by mouth or injection (systemic therapy)

What are the risk factors for development of psoriasis?

Can Psoriasis change from one form to another?

Yes, psoriasis can change from one type to another depending on its extent of spread and trigger factors.

e.g. If a patient is having psoriasis limited to scalp, any trigger factor can cause it to spread on trunk (Red raised irregular patches of Plaque PS) , or on palms or soles (Plantar PS), or on joints ( PSA), or on fold areas of body like axilla, groins( Inverse PS) or all over body.

What treatments are the best for me?

The unpredictable nature of Psoriasis makes treatment challenging for many people. A wide range of treatments is available. No single Psoriasis treatment works for everyone, but something will work for most people. It is hard to predict what will work for a particular individual; however, it is important to be open-minded and willing to work with your doctor to find a treatment that will work for you.
