What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis. which is marked by a red, scaly rash, affects over three million people in the United States each year. For many, the dry, itchy patches are not only unsightly and embarrassing, they can also have a significant impact on their daily lives . In order to understand the condition and psoriasis treatment that can make a real difference, you need to understand what it really is and what causes it.
The Cause of Psoriasis
The actual cause of psoriasis is not known, but the condition occurs due to the skin cells growing up to five times faster than normal, healthy cells. This overgrowth results in the older cells simply piling up on the skin rather than sloughing off as they normally would.
The causes of psoriasis are based in your immune system and potentially even your genes. Those who have psoriasis often have genes that work to control the immune system that don't function properly. In a healthy immune system that functions properly, cells that are considered invaders are attacked within the body to prevent them from spreading, such as what happens when you have an infection. However, with psoriasis, the immune system actually causes the skin cells to go into overdrive, resulting in inflammation and the patchy skin rash that is the hallmark of psoriasis.
Many people can go periods of time where they have no issues with their psoriasis, then something occurs that makes it flare up again. These flare-ups are often caused by triggers. These triggers can range from something as simple as a bug bite or scratching something too much to infections such as strep and even hormone fluctuations. Still others may be the result of certain medications, such as those used for heart problems, high blood pressure and mental illnesses.
Skin inflammation is a sign that toxins are inside your body. It appears externally because your skin is the largest and only visible organ. In the case of serious skin problems, external treatment with a cream is not sufficient. The better approach is to detoxify your body because it then expels the toxins from inside and prevents the problems from recurring.
