What is Psoriasis ?
Psoriasis is a skin condition which causes redness and itchiness. It is a disease which has a very low effect, affecting about 2% of the entire population. There are five types to the disease which are guttate, plaque, pustular, inverse and erythrodermic. Among all plaque is the most common which most commonly appears in the shoulders and arms, however, this type of disease can appear in any part of the body.
Treatment has to be followed by applying procedures which are standard and provided by professionals in the med care industry. Sufferers shouldn’t attempt to manipulate the affected areas of body with home remedies without doing the proper research. Often you can expand research to include other skin conditions and you will find some overlap with home remedies, take for example vitiligo home remedies which will include homeopathic medicines as one of many approaches. Researching for solutions should include consulting a doctor as well. If non treated, the condition can worsen and the affected body part can widen and become more visible. If the body part that’s affected isn’t hidden it may cause embarrassment to the patients. Much like other skin conditions such as vitiligo this can be embarrassing and you will start to become desperate to finding a remedy. The lack of knowledge by people in general in regards to this disease may cause people that have the disease to think at first that it is a common itchiness.

PUVA is a combination of an oral drug (psoralen) and followed by ultraviolet light exposure. This treatment should show some significant improvement in the sufferers skin disease after 15 treatments. (note; this does have possible side affects). This whole treatment system follows a ladder which increases gradually towards the enhancement of the patient status. Although no cure is available it is possible to minimize the patients suffering by decreasing itchiness and the pain the region. All the efforts have been done towards enhancing the patient’s quality of life and although there is no common view point as to the origins of this type of disease it is said that doctors are closer to finding a cure.
This disease has its cause attached to the general environment in specific situations. With current technology it is now easier to measure the possible causes of the disease and how to treat it. More complex diseases are having its cure found so its certain that in due time psoriasis will also have its cause determined in all its aspects.
