IS PSORIASIS CURABLE?
There is no definite cure for psoriasis until now, but there are certain ways that one can use to get relief from the symptoms of this inflammable condition. It is one of the most common skin diseases.
This condition affects people of all ages and is generally inherited. Psoriasis causes skin irritation and redness that can appear almost anywhere on the body. People who suffer from the same tend to have thick red skin and there is absolutely no certain way to prevent this condition.
As it is an autoimmune disease it occurs when the body’s immune system ends up attacking the healthy cells in our body, mistaking them to be the dangerous cells. In a few cases, it goes away and the irritation occurs. It can be triggered due to stress, anxiety, skin infections, etc. People having a weak immune system may have chances of suffering from this condition.
Psoriasis can be treated by three methods, which are topical medications, internal medications, and phototherapy.
Psoriasis is often treated with certain skin medicines that are used directly over the skin, which are many ointments and creams or shampoos and moisturizers that contain vitamin D and Vitamin A. If the person is suffering from severe psoriasis then it is treated with medicines that tend to suppress the person’s immune response. It mainly targets the body’s immune responses and stops the cells attacking or to fight. Phototherapy involves the skin to be treated by exposing it to ultraviolet light; this reduces the symptoms in many people. Although there has to be a proper facility, where this can be done and to remember the fact that UV rays can cause skin cancers and mutation that is why a skin specialist should do it.
Certain home remedies are also used to cure this condition like sun exposure techniques, meditation, baths. etc.
