Psoriasis-Before-After

Psoriasis is a skin condition characterized by red, white or silvery thick patches of skin appearing most often on the elbows, scalp, hands, feet, knees or lower back. These areas are created by new skin cells moving rapidly to the surface of the skin over the period of a few days rather than a few weeks as found in unaffected areas. These skin cells build up and form the thick patches of affected skin called plaques.

I was fighting psoriasis for years and nearly gave up. The doctor gave me a unique concoction of medications which started to work several days after seeing him. N.M London

Prevalence and Risk Factors

Approximately 2% of the population is affected by this skin condition which makes for a huge number of people suffering from this uncomfortable, itchy and embarrassing problem. The London dermatology clinic notes that psoriasis is more common in adults although it can be found in children and teenagers as well. This condition is a hereditary one although it is complex to determine who will be affected.

Although it is unknown what ultimately causes psoriasis, it is often triggered by events such as a throat infection, injury to the skin or stress. Alcohol and cigarette smoke can worsen the medication as well as some medications such as beta blockers, malaria tablets and lithium. There appears to be no relationship between this skin condition and the patient’s diet.

Oftentimes, sunlight helps to improve psoriasis although it can make it worse. This is especially true if the area is sunburned so caution and sunscreen are recommended by the London dermatology clinic.

The London dermatology clinic recommends a number of different treatments for those suffering from psoriasis although there is no known way to permanently cure it. The first course of treatment at a skin clinic usually involves a topical therapy with emollients, salicylic acid, topical steroids, tar preparations or other ingredients. Medicated shampoos with tar or coconut oil are often recommended by the London dermatology clinic in addition to lotion for those who have affected scalps. Phototherapy is often the next step of treatment recommended by a dermatologist. Whilst we do not provide phototherapy on-site we enjoy a referral link with a local phototherapy centre and we will pay 50% towards the cost of our patients initial session. The London dermatology clinic recommends systemic treatment with oral tablets for some cases, including those which are treatment resistant or complex in nature.
