What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is common. People who do not know about this disease expect it to be contagious. Thus, that person avoids anyone suffering from this disorder. We frequently see the same family members with this disease. So, genetics does seem to play a role.
When skin cells multiply faster than usual, it causes the formation of bumpy red patches with white scales. As a result, psoriasis shows up anywhere on the body. However, the most prominent places for this disease are the lower back, knees, elbows, ears, and scalp. Areas heal up only to return again and again, and, to date, there is no cure.
If you notice symptoms, please call us and make an appointment. We can help you avoid these symptoms of red scaly patches of skin that are painful and itchy. In addition, treatment helps prevent these areas from cracking open, causing bleeding.
This disease affects the fingernails and toenails. If symptoms worsen, the nails can detach from the nail bed. In addition, this disease can affect your joints, causing pain and swelling, known as psoriatic arthritis. We also know some of the triggers for this disease are cuts, stress, infections, and a whole list of medications. We will review your medical history and prescribed medications.
