Suffering From Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a common and chronic condition that usually causes patches of itchy, scaly and sometimes inflamed skin. Although they can appear anywhere, these patches are most likely to show up on knees, elbows, hands, feet scalp or your back. In some case even the fingernails and toenails can be affected.

The symptoms of psoriasis can vary greatly depending on the severity. Researchers estimate that up to seven million people in the United States suffer from psoriasis. That is about 2% of the population. There is no cure for psoriasis, however there are effective treatments to keep it under control.

Depending on where psoriasis appears on your body, it can be an embarrassing disease. People don’t understand it, are leery of it and may even avoid you. Coping with psoriasis can cause stress, which can make your psoriasis worse. This is a vicious cycle that you may be caught in. According to Dr Bruce E. Strober, MD, PhD, co-director of the Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis Center at New York University, “Psoriasis has a tremendous impact on quality of life”. His studies shows that psoriasis detracts more from the quality of life than any other condition except depression, and that includes heart disease and diabetes.

Psoriasis cannot be passed on to other people and you can’t spread to another part of your body by touch. Your susceptibility to getting psoriasis increases if it runs in your family, it is believed to be an inherited trait.

Triggers for psoriasis flare-ups include cold and dry weather, stress, some medications and even infections or disease.
