Basic Causes of Psoriasis
Psoriasis is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition. It is understood that the immune system and family history can play roles in its development. The immune system is somehow triggered, which causes a series of events, including inflammation and acceleration of skin cell growth. Instead of falling off (shedding), the cells pile up on the surface of the skin, forming psoriatic plaques.
People with psoriasis typically experience patches of thick, red skin covered with silvery scales called plaques.
There are many kinds of psoriasis. The most common is Plaque Psoriasis. Other common types are Scalp Psoriasis and Nail Psoriasis. While there is no known cure for psoriasis, there are remedies that can help reduce and/or alleviate the condition. For many people psoriasis is a social stigma that causes pain, itching and emotional pain as well.(Also read “Basic Causes of Dry Skin” in our Suggested Home Remedies for DRY, ITCHY SKIN, Normal to Severe, on this website).
