Psoriasis and Its Ayurvedic Treatment

Skin rashes, skin irritations, and related diseases are on the rise in the current scenario. A majority of the population must have faced some sort of illness related to the skin, be it mild or chronic one is bound to be exposed to this kind of complication. A plethora of reasons could lead to the manifestation of various kinds of skin disorders. One such skin disorder is psoriasis, which has attained quite a several cases in modern times.


An Insight Into The Disease Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a disorder of the skin, wherein the patient suffers from skin rashes, itchiness, and scaly patches. It is believed to be a chronic disease that can be managed with the right treatment and regimen protocol. Psoriasis is believed to be an immune-mediated disorder.

While our body is subjected to the cyclic formation of new cells and shedding off of old ones, in a patient with psoriasis the cycle speeds up. But here the skin cells do not shed, instead, they heap upon the skin and lead to the formation of plaques and scaly skin.

If left untreated the disease may move onto psoriatic arthritis and cause further joint stiffness and swelling and eventually pain in and around the areas of the joints. People regardless of their skin color can suffer from psoriasis. Psoriasis occurs in specific periods in one’s course of the disease. While the intensity of the disease may be amplified at certain times, it may then subside later, and the patient cycles through these periods. Psoriasis is in no way contagious, but it has been proven to be hereditary. That means psoriasiscan pass down through generations.

Causes Of Psoriasis

As mentioned above, through extensive research the major two causes of psoriasis are believed to be the immune system and genetics. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease. While normal skin cells take approximately a month to produce new cells and shed off. But as psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder, the immune system attacks the self-skin cells. This ultimately results in the overproduction of skin cells within a span of a few days and a lack of enough time to shed the overproduced cells. Thus leading to piling of the cells and causing plaque and scaly lesions. The patches may bleed when itched constantly and vigorously.

The second cause is genetics. An affected person can pass on the genes of psoriasis down the generations but it is vehemently not a contagious disorder. Skin injury, physical stress, and reaction towards certain medications can also stimulate the manifestation of psoriasis.
