Informational Facts About Psoriasis:

  1. About one in three people with psoriasis have a family history of the disease, and scientists have identified genetic signals that point to the condition.
  2. One belief considers psoriasis as primarily a disorder of excessive growth and reproduction of skin cells. The infection is simply seen as a fault of the epidermis.
  3. One school of thought sees the disease as being an immune-mediated disorder in which the excessive reproduction of skin cells is secondary to factors produced by the immune system.
  4. Psoriasis occurs more regularly in dry skin than oily or well-moisturized skin, and specifically after an external skin injury such as a scratch or cut.
  5. To eliminate dry skin and help psoriasis symptoms, it is essential to not use shower scrubs, as they not only hurt skin by leaving tiny scratches, they also scrape off the naturally essential skin oil.
  6. Although anti-inflammatory solutions can relieve signs of the disease they do not solve the underlying affliction and may not be the best option for cure.
  7. There may be substantial variation between individuals in the effectiveness of specific psoriasis treatments and, as a result of this, dermatologists sometimes use a trial-and-error approach to finding the most appropriate treatment for their patient.
  8. It has long been recognized that frequent, short, non-burning exposure to the rays of the sun helps to reduce or improve psoriasis.
  9. Psoriasis is often a lifelong condition; there is at present no cure but various treatments can help to reduce the symptoms that affect the patient.
  10. Psoriasis may become worse over time but it is not possible to predict those that will go on to develop serious psoriasis or those in whom the disease may appear to go away.

There are five kinds of Psoriasis affecting individuals. Each of these has their own characteristics and unique formations, which help in ease of identification.

Plaque- Represented as one of the commonest forms of Psoriasis, this disease affects 80% of major Psoriasis patients. Typical characteristics of such a condition are inflamed and reddish skin, which is topped by silvery and whitish scaly formations. Primary areas of their incidence are elbows, knees, lower back and the scalp. In some persons, plaque can happen on other body areas as well.

Guttate- Guttate Psoriasis predominantly occurs in adolescents and children. Typical characteristics of such a condition include reddish, small-sized spots over the skin. This kind of skin condition happens suddenly and there are many trigger factors for this. These include infections inside the upper respiratory tract, streptococcal infections, stress and anxiety, skin injuries as well as induced by certain drugs.

Inverse- Typical characteristics of Inverse Psoriasis include extremely red lesions over the skin. These lesions are devoid of scaly formations and hence look smooth and shiny. Excessive rubbing or accumulation of sweat can result in these lesions. Typical locations in the body where Inverse Psoriasis is commonly found include below breasts, armpits, genital skin folds, groin as well as the buttock area. If a person is obese or has skin folds, which are deeper than normal then they are prone to Inverse Psoriasis. If the condition is found on sensitive regions then treatment becomes more difficult.

Pustular- Pustular Psoriasis primarily infects adults. Characteristics of this condition include white pustule formations, which are surrounded with reddish inflamed skin. Primary areas of concentration on the body include feet and hands. In some persons, Pustular Psoriasis occurs on the whole body.

Within the Pustular Psoriasis category, there are four sub-divisions or types. These are:

Localized- Singular or multiple Psoriasis patches develop pustule formations. If these areas are irritated or high doses of medicines are administered then this localized Pustular Psoriasis can develop.

Palmo-Planter- In this condition, the soles and palms of the body are affected, thereby accounting for its name. The size of the pustules is like that of an eraser and typical concentrations occur on heel sides and thumb base areas. The pustules look like studs and start initially as red formations, which turn brown later on. Subsequently these formations start peeling off and the area assumes a crusty appearance. This activity continues in a cyclic style.

Acropustulosis- This is localized Pustular Psoriasis, primarily affecting the toes, fingers and thumbs. The pustule formations occur and subsequently they burst. These leave behind bright red formations, which can ooze pus, or be crusty and scaly in appearance. The nails assume crumbly, abnormal appearances and can often get uplifted. This happens because of pus layers underneath. However, the incidence of such a type of Pustular Psoriasis is rare.

Generalized- In such a kind of Pustular Psoriasis, there will be reddish skin initially. This is accompanied by tenderness and pain in the areas. During the next 1-2 days, there is peeling and drying up of the pustules. The skin assumes a glazy and smooth appearance and this continues in a cyclic activity for several weeks. Accompanying side effects include itching, chills and fever, enhanced pulse rates, dehydration, anemia, weakness of muscle and loss of weight. If this condition is manifested in adults, the trigger factor could be stopping steroids all of a sudden. This is a fatal condition, which necessitates immediate hospitalization.

Erythrodermic- This kind of Psoriasis affects the entire body of the individual. Redness in skin, itchiness, pain and skin shedding are common symptoms. Due to excess loss of fluids and protein the patient can contract long term illness. Thus, the person can experience fatal conditions, heart failure or even pneumonia. Cortisone usage sunburns or drug allergies can trigger such a condition.

Anybody have any good home remedies for Psoriasis?

My niece is 3 years old and has a patch of it on her scalp and I also have a touch of it on my knees and elbows. They have tried a medicated shampoo for her but it doesn’t seem to be working. I have also tried several prescription ointments for mine, that hasn’t worked real well. I just wondered if anyone knew of any home remedies for this. My grandfather has it also. I just hope my kids don’t end up with it. I was 19 before mine broke out. I’ve been told it’s hereditary. It’s hard to get control of and there is no cure for it and I really don’t want them to have to go through that and the people looking at you like you have some kind of contagious disease. That really gets on my nerves. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Look for lactic. All our experts agree that the most important step in controlling psoriasis is to keep skin well moisturized. “A big problem with psoriasis is scale buildup, and moisturizers are extremely effective at preventing this,” says Nicholas J. Lowe, M.D., clinical professor of dermatology at the University of California, Los Angeles, School of Medicine and director of the Skin Research Foundation of California in Santa Monica. “Plain petroleum jelly is a very effective moisturizer. But if you’re buying a commercial moisturizer, those that contain lactic acid, such as LactiCare, seem to work better. Also, Eucerin cream works well as a moisturizer for those with psoriasis.”

Moisturize after bathing. To get the most from your moisturizer, “apply it within three minutes after leaving the shower or bathtub,” advises Glennis McNeal, public information director at the National Psoriasis Foundation headquarters in Portland, Oregon. “We recommend that you pat yourself dry and apply the moisturizer liberally all over your body–not just on plaques. That’s because even ‘clear’ skin in people with psoriasis is drier than in people who don’t have psoriasis. It’s thought that little cracks on dry skin might encourage more psoriasis.”

Soak up the sun. Many psoriasis patients are prescribed a specific regimen of ultraviolet light treatments. Getting artificial sunlight from a special lamp or tanning booth can help. An easier and less expensive method is simply to hit the Great Outdoors. “We know that exposure to sunlight is extremely helpful for treating psoriasis,” says David Kalin, M.D., a family practitioner in Largo, Florida. A moderate amount of sunlight enhances the production of vitamin D, which may be effective in controlling psoriasis.

But don’t soak up the booze. Doctors are still trying to find out for sure why alcohol exacerbates psoriasis. They suspect that alcohol increases activity of a certain kind of white blood cell that’s found in psoriasis patients but not in other people. (But it’s also possible that drinkers are just more highly stressed and therefore more prone to psoriasis.)

“Alcohol is a definite problem,” according to Stephen M. Purcell, D.O., chairman of the Department of Dermatology at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and assistant clinical professor at Hahnemann University School of Medicine in Philadelphia. “It’s best to not drink at all if you have psoriasis.”

Spice up your bath. Bathing is often a catch-22 for those with psoriasis. That’s because soaking in warm water helps soften psoriasis plaques, but it sometimes dries skin and worsens itching. “One way to get the benefits of a bath without the dryness is to add a couple of capfuls of vegetable oil to your bath,” says McNeal. “The best way to do it is to get in the tub first, so your body soaks up the water, and then add the oil.” Another alternative suggested by McNeal: Mix two teaspoons of olive oil in a large glass of milk and add that to your bath.

Be extra careful stepping out of the tub, since oils can make surfaces very slippery. (Be sure to scrub the tub afterward.)

Head to the kitchen to soothe that itchin’. To soothe itching caused by dry skin and psoriasis, dissolve 1/3 cup of baking soda in a gallon of water. Soak a washcloth in the solution, wring it out, and then it apply to the itchy area. Or add a cup of apple cider kitchen vinegar to the water and apply that to the skin.

Cover the cracks with cow cream. If your skin is cracked because of psoriasis–which can cause itching and more plaques–do what dairymen do. “They found that Bag Balm, a product originally used to relieve cracking in cow udders, worked just as well on their cracked hands,” says McNeal. “Then people with psoriasis found it worked great on their dry or cracked skin.” Bag Balm is available at most feed stores; some drugstores may be able to order it.

Take care of mind and body. Stress is a known trigger of psoriasis, so managing your mental state–through exercise, relaxation techniques or whatever mellows you out–is one way to keep your condition under control.

Guard against infection and injury. “Infection may lead to an outbreak or worsen your condition, so it’s important to try to avoid infectious disease,” says Dr. Kalin. New lesions may also appear on injured skin, so try to avoid cuts and scrapes.

Watch what you eat. “Although there are no specific links that have been proven, it appears a diet high in oily fish–such as tuna, mackerel, sardines and salmon–helps reduce the itching and inflammation of psoriasis,” says Dr. Lowe.

Avoid certain foods. “Some anecdotal reports suggest patients do better when they reduce or eliminate tomatoes and tomato-based dishes–possibly because of high acidity levels,” says Dr. Kalin. “Also, some of my patients with psoriasis have noticed a decrease in plaques by avoiding or limiting their intake of pork products and other fatty meats as well as caffeine.”

Go electric. If you have plaques on your face, neck, legs or other areas that require shaving, use an electric razor instead of a blade. “An electric razor won’t cut skin as easily, and every time you cut yourself, you risk new lesions,”
