Introduction to Psoriasis

What Is Psoriasis ?

Psoriasis is one of the most chronic skin conditions in which an individual’s skin cells grow rapidly, ultimately resulting in the frequent development of white, red, or silvery thickened patches of skin.
Psoriasis mainly develops in an individual when his own immune system starts sending wrong messages and signals to the brain that result in the growth of skin cells too quickly that instead of growing in weeks, they develop in just a few days.

Also, along with this whole process, the body remains unable to shed those excess skin cells due to which they tend to pile up on one another on the skin’s surface, causing psoriasis skin patches to appear. Those rough patches typically range from small to large size and most commonly affect regions like

lower back, and many more.

Indeed, the correct diagnosis of a disease is key to appropriate treatment within time.

And many other such issues that are directky or indirectly linked to the practical care of the patients .

What Are the Major Causes of Psoriasis?

Although psoriasis can somehow look like a contagious skin disease, but in reality, it is absolutely not. No one can get psoriasis from coming in direct contact or touching any individual who already has psoriasis. Also, you cannot catch psoriasis by having sex or while swimming in a pool.

Instead, many scientists and skin experts believe that psoriasis primarily occurs when an individual’s immune system starts behaving abnormally and overreacts by producing many cells at a time. Sometimes, that also results in inflammation and flaking of the skin in some severe conditions.

In a few cases, psoriasis becomes a part of a genetic combination and then runs in several generations of a family. Therefore, it needs to be cured by taking the best psoriasis treatment in Lahore, Pakistan, as soon as possible.

In order to catch psoriasis, an individual must inherit the genes responsible for psoriasis from any of his ancestors. Several scientists have recently learned that an individual’s genes and the immune system play a crucial role in causing psoriasis. Scientists have also presented that any individual who has unknowingly inherited the genes causing psoriasis will surely get psoriasis either at any stage of his life. Therefore, from all this discussion, it seems that psoriasis is somehow a genetic skin disorder. An individual must inherit the right mix of genes from his parents; only then will he be safe from it.


However, nowadays, many people say that they start feeling the symptons of psoriasis when exposed to any of its triggers, and now they are experiencing the destructive impact of psoriasis. Some of those triggers mainly include :
