Long-lasting autoimmune disease


What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis can start at any age but it most commonly affects adults. Around 2% of adults suffer from this condition, which presents as red, dry, sore patches covered in silver scales. It is usually found on the knees, elbows, scalp, and lower back, but it can be found anywhere on the body, including under the nail beds.

What Causes it?

It is thought to be an autoimmune condition that causes your body to make too many skin cells. It can be hereditary but can also come on due to possible triggers such as stress, skin injury, throat infections, and certain medicines. It is not contagious.


What Can You Do To Help Naturally?


Psoriasis symptoms can be eased with natural remedies such as aloe vera, tea tree oil, and apple cider vinegar.

Steroids and corticosteroids are often used in very severe cases.

Phototherapy (light therapy) is also medically recognised to treat psoriasis but is often very difficult to get as an NHS treatment.



Can psoriasis be prevented?

There is no way to cure or prevent psoriasis. But you can do lots of things to improve the symptoms or reduce the amount of flare-ups.

Can psoriasis be caused by stress?

A stressful situation may cause a change in the immune system, resulting in an outbreak of psoriasis. Stress, illness (particularly strep infections), and certain medications can all cause psoriasis flare-ups.

Is psoriasis contagious?

Like other autoimmune conditions, psoriasis is not contagious and cannot be spread from person to person. However, it can be hereditary and passed down through families.
