Psoriasis is a chronic skin disorder, which is characterized by red or white silvery scaly patches which may or may not be associated with itching and tenderness. Though Psoriasis is not a life-threatening disease, it increases your risk of several health conditions like Diabetes, Heart attack, Psoriatic Arthritis and others. Hence treating Psoriasis is very essential. Homeopathy plays a proven role in effective treatment of Psoriasis. It not just controls the symptoms but also provides long-term relief by treating root cause of the condition.
Psoriasis occurs when there is an excessive and rapid growth of epidermal layer of the skin (top most layer of the skin). Normally skin cells are replaced by shedding with new cells for every 28 to 30 days, but in Psoriasis it may occur for every 3-4 days, due to premature proliferation of keratinocytes which are produced from dermis ( 2nd layer of Skin) leading to formation of silvery and scaly patches with exfoliation of skin.
Certain factors which trigger the onset of psoriasis includes chronic infections, hereditary, stress, climacteric and seasonal changes, alcohol consumption, smoking , obesity, over exposure to sun, certain therapies (pain killers, anti-hypertensives) and people with advanced HIV often exhibit Psoriasis.
