Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease where skin cells run amok. Usually our skin renews itself in about 24 days which is the time taken by skin cells to work their way from the innermost layer to the upper surface of the skin. But in cases of Psoriasis the cells reach the surface in just 3-4 days which causes a huge cluster of thick skin flakes to accumulate on the surface of the skin giving rise to typical appearance in psoriatic lesions. And it becomes normal to have inflammation and soreness around the area. Psoriatic scales are usually whitish-silver and appear in dense & red areas. One can receive the best psoriasis treatment in Patna at our clinic after the proper diagnosis.
Symptoms vary from person to person and depend on the type of psoriasis. The most common symptoms are:
Plaque Psoriasis : This one is the most common type of psoriasis which causes raised, red and inflamed skin covered with silvery white scales. These patches are often itchy which may crack and bleed. They can come anywhere on the body but are mostly found on the scalp, elbow, knee and ankle areas.
Inverse Psoriasis : This type occurs as bright red, smooth & shiny patches with no scales. It is usually seen in association with another type of psoriasis elsewhere on the body simultaneously. It occurs on skin folds and get worse with sweating or friction caused by tight clothing. It is commonly seen on armpits, groin, behind knees, skin folds, behind ears.
Pustular Psoriasis : This kind of psoriasis is characterized by pus filled lesions surrounded by red skin but they are neither infectious nor contagious. They can be found on one or two localized areas or may occur in a generalized form all over the body and this generalized form can be serious; the patient may suffer from chills and fever and may require immediate medical attention. It is seen on feet, hands and extensive body areas.
Nail Psoriasis : Nail psoriasis can seriously change the way your finger and toe nails look. The nails may become thick and also may change color or shape. Ridges, grooves or pitting may appear on the nail surface. They can also become tender. A chalky white material can gather under the nail causing it to get separate from the nail bed.
Erythrodermic Psoriasis : It's a particularly severe form of psoriasis that causes widespread and fiery redness over larger areas of the body. It can cause severe itching, pain and can also make the skin come off in sheets rather than small scales. Apart from the skin, this kind of psoriasis can disrupt the whole body chemistry. It can cause the skin to lose its ability to control body temperature which leads to wild temperature fluctuations. In severe cases people may need hospitalization.
Psoriasis can be caused by a malfunctioning immune system and it can also be inherited genetically. Further stress, alcohol, certain medications & infection can also trigger psoriasis. Psoriasis flares very easily when people are stressed and tends to improve when they are relaxed.
There are number of effective psoriasis treatment alternatives. The effective psoriasis treatment in Patna delivered at our clinic is basically decided on the basis of disease severity, the extent of areas involved, the type of psoriasis or the patient’s initial response to treatments. This is usually called the “1-2-3” approach:
Step 1: First step involves the topical applications, which reduces inflammation and sloughing of dead skin. Topical applications includes retinoids, Vitamin D analogs, Salicylic acid etc.
Step 2 : Next focus is given to sun light and UV therapies. UV rays exposure in sunlight or artificial light makes activated T cells in the skin die which slows down the skin cell turnover and reduces scaling and inflammation. Both UVA and UVB radiations can be beneficial & effective in the treatment of mild to severe psoriasis symptoms.
Step 3 : It involves the usage of oral medications and immune-modulating drugs for those with moderate to severe psoriasis who haven’t reacted well to other treatment options.
Normally individualized treatments offers relief but are seldom strong enough to clear lesions over the long term so a combination approach is therefore considered to be the treatment of choice at our clinic to provide the best psoriasis treatment in Patna.
