This is a skin disorder characterized by red plaques covered with white scales. It occurs due to unnatural multiplication of skin cells. Though psoriasis typically appears on the knees, scalp and elbows, it can also affect any part of the body.
The symptoms of psoriasis can be scaly patches on the skin that can be itchy and painful. They can also bleed. In severe cases, large areas of patches can be formed by irritated skin merging with each other. Disorders and discoloration of fingernails and toenails may also be noticed.
Psoriasis can also lead to arthritis, called psoriatic arthritis, associated with debilitating pain and swelling in the joints.
Psoriasis tends to run in the family tree. This condition can be embarrassing and frustrating to say the least, but the flare-ups tend to disappear over a period of time. It has been observed that stress factors play a major role in triggering the episodes of psoriasis.
Though there is no cure for this condition, proper management and timely interventions can go a long way in warding off this disease. Homeopathy has a very good track record in managing psoriasis. It not only reduces the itchy patches, it also reduces the risk of recurrence.

If left untreated, the long-term damage to the joints can be significant. Fibrous tissue may form around the joints, and bones may fuse together. This can cause deformity and a loss of mobility. Of course, with the hands being the most commonly affected, this loss of mobility can cause serious issues with quality of life.

Frequently Asked Qustions
How do you get psoriasis of the skin?
As underlying cells reach the skin's surface and die, their sheer volume causes raised, red plaques covered with white scales. Psoriasis typically occurs on the knees, elbows, and scalp, and it can also affect the torso, palms, and soles of the feet. The symptoms of psoriasis vary depending on the type you have.
What is the cause of guttate psoriasis?
It is possible to have strep throat or another viral or bacterial infection without exhibiting any symptoms, which is why guttate psoriasis sometimes appears "out of the blue." Guttate psoriasis can also have genetic causes. A person has an increased chance of developing the disease if it runs in the immediate family.
