Aside from providing an overview of the condition, the article covers available treatment options that can help those who suffer from Psoriasis alleviate their symptoms.
Psoriasis is a skin disorder caused by skin cells multiplying ten times faster than healthy cells. As a result, the skin builds up in dry, red patches covered with white scales. These are mostly found on the elbows, knees, or scalp.
As stated in the article, research suggests that Psoriasis is not an uncommon condition. Around 2% of people worldwide and over 8 million Americans are affected by this skin condition. The good news is, you can't catch Psoriasis - it is not contagious.
If you suffer from this skin disorder you may experience several symptoms including itchy, sore, and thick skin. Psoriasis can affect individuals at any age, but symptoms most commonly appear in younger adults from age 15 to 35. The article also states that stress, smoking, obesity, alcohol, as well as some medications and cold weather can cause these skin flare-ups to worsen.
While there is no cure, you can find treatment options. If you're experiencing mild symptoms, the author recommends lotions, warm baths with oatmeal or Epsom salt. However, if you have more severe flare-ups, you should consult a licensed physician. They can prescribe topical medications, injections, pills, and create a personalized treatment plan for you.
Research has also found that with a healthy diet rich in minerals, vitamins, fiber, and lean proteins you can reduce flare-ups.
