Psoriasis is a chronic auto-immune disease that appears on the skin. It occurs when the immune system sends out faulty signals that speed up the growth cycle of the skin cells. This is a problem that is fast increasing. Both adults and children are equally affected and it is a rare disorder in the case of children. The scalp is a common site for the occurrence of the problem, but it can also affect other parts of the body wherever there are folds of the skin like the elbows, knees and the likes.
Psoriasis gives rise to a host of psychological problems and these vary in their degree and intensity depending on the individual, his age, mental ability to cope, support systems, etc. Unwillingness to socialize or to have sexual relations may be a fall-out of psoriasis and trichologists often have to double up as psychologists to help the patient out of this personal crisis.
Psoriasis is of autoimmune nature. One can have long periods of remission and the aim of the treatment is to control the severity and frequency of the symptoms without administering any steroidal agents.
