Life with Psoriasis

Everyone has the right to look pleasingly beautiful. Although, it is not right to judge someone based on their looks, all creatures are innately drawn towards beauty. While nature inspires to be at the best looks, science has its own way to perfect it. A radiant and healthy-looking skin is a dream cherished by every human being.

What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a chronic auto-immune disease characterised by abnormal and red flat bumps or plaques of scaly, and dry skin patches. Psoriasis may turn into an acute or severe skin disorder if not diagnosed on time. It might become worse if not given the proper and the right treatment. By understanding what are the Psoriasis Causes and figuring out what triggers the reoccurrence of Psoriasis, the problem can be shunned to a great extent. Psoriasis cure may differ from person to person depending on the type of treatment the doctor gives. It is a chronic skin condition and there is no permanent cure for it. However, there are possibilities the condition might get better with the right doctor with appropriate treatment and at the right time.


Psoriasis symptoms may vary depending on the type and the severity. Few of the common sign and symptoms include:

  • Red, raised, scaly patches of skin.
  • Whitish plaques or lesions covered with silvery scales
  • Minor rash on the skin, nails, or joints.
  • Dry and cracked bleeding skin.
  • Ridged, chapped nails.
  • Stiff, painful joints.

These symptoms may range from meek, minor, vague dry skin patches to severe psoriasis where it is more likely to involve large areas of skin. You can reach out to your nearest skin doctor for advice, if you see any of the above said symptoms.
