What is psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a non-infectious and non-transmissible autoimmune skin condition that can be both baffling and persistent. Thick, silvery white, scaly plaques appear on the skin due to the rapid and excessive proliferation of cells. Common areas of the body that are affected are knees, elbows, scalp, legs, trunk, and nails. It can also be found on any part of the skin. The lesions are typically raised, silvery white, red and itchy. There are different types of psoriasis but one of the most common types is the plaque psoriasis.
Signs and Symptoms
At Skin Secrets, we first conduct a thorough examination after taking a detailed medical and personal history. Treatment options may vary based on the degree of involvement . It may vary from body washes , topical medications, shampoo, oral medications, injections to light therapies . If required, blood tests and skin biopsy may be carried out prior to commencing the treatment.
Not all cases presented with the aforementioned symptoms are psoriasis, so one must visit a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis.
