What are the common symptoms of psoriasis?

Here are the most common types of psoriasis:

  • If your skin has raised red patches with silvery white scales, that’s called ‘plaque psoriasis’ (this is the most common form)
  • If psoriasis covers large areas of the skin with pink spots or blotches, it may be ‘guttate psoriasis’
  • If the psoriasis affects your groin, folds of skin, armpits and the backs of your legs, it’s likely to be ‘inverse psoriasis’
  • If you experience white blisters surrounded by red skin that’s extremely itchy, you might have ‘pustular psoriasis’
  • If you have widespread reddening of the skin, it’s probably ‘erythrodermic psoriasis’

What causes psoriasis?

Psoriasis is caused when skin cells mature too quickly. The process should take around 28 days, but in people with psoriasis, it can take only three or four days. That means the new cells arrive at the surface still surrounded by their intercellular glue.

Initial triggers for psoriasis appear to be related to stress, skin injury and streptococcal throat infection. The condition often flares up when the season changes.

Who gets psoriasis?

The cause is not known, but if one or both parents have psoriasis, it’s more likely that you will have it too. It’s important to note that psoriasis is not infectious; sharing this knowledge helps reassure people around you.

Can psoriasis be cured or treated?

In a survey, 71% of sufferers reported that psoriasis gave them a ‘significant’ problem’ in daily life, with 63% saying it made them feel self-consciousness and 58% experiencing embarrassment about it. Source: National Psoriasis Foundation 2008 as quoted on Wikipedia

With that in mind, it’s most unfortunate that there’s no cure. However, there is a treatment.

What is the best treatment for psoriasis?

Dry skin tends to erupt more often, so the best cure for psoriasis is to moisturise, moisturise, moisturise. We recommend the following 100% natural treatment that gives no risk of irritation.

Recommended psoriasis skin care regime:
1. Wash with our Deep Cleansing Therapy Bar every morning and night. Just let the lather absorb; don’t rinse it off.
2. Apply our Ultra Sensitive Therapy Cream after bathing or showering and at intervals throughout the day.

This treatment regime results in 24-hour hydration and noticeable results within two weeks. We urge you to give it a try and use the comments section below to let us know how you get on.
