Title: Psoriasis Treatment in Delhi, India

What is psoriasis?
  • Psoriasis is a noncontagious, chronic skin
    condition that produces plaques of thickened,
    scaling skin. The dry flakes of skin scales
    result from the excessively rapid proliferation
    of skin cells. The proliferation of skin cells is
    triggered by inflammatory chemicals produced by
    specialized white blood cells called lymphocytes.
    Psoriasis commonly affects the skin of the
    elbows, knees, and scalp.
  • The spectrum of disease ranges from mild with
    limited involvement of small areas of skin to
    large, thick plaques to red inflamed skin
    affecting the entire body surface.
  • Psoriasis is considered an incurable, long-term
    (chronic) inflammatory skin condition. It has a
    variable course, periodically improving and
    worsening. It is not unusual for psoriasis to
    spontaneously clear for years and stay in
    remission. Many people note a worsening of their
    symptoms in the colder winter months.

What are the symptoms of psoriasis?
The most common symptoms of psoriasis include
  • Red patches of skin
  • Scaly, sometimes silvery, skin patches
  • itchy skin
  • joint swelling, stiffness, or pain

Types of Psoriasis
  • Plaque Psoriasis
  • Guttate Psoriasis
  • Flexural or inverse Psoriasis
  • Pustular Psoriasis
  • Psoriatic arthritis
  • Erythrodermic Psoriasis
  • Nail Psoriasis
  • Scalp psoriasis

Plaque psoriasis
  • Plaque psoriasis, or psoriasis vulgaris, is the
    most common form of psoriasis. An estimated 85
    percent of people with psoriasis have plaque
    psoriasis. Its characterized by thick red
    patches of skin, often with a silver or white
    scaly layer. These patches often appear on the
  • knees
  • Elbows
  • lower back
  • scalp

Plaque Psoriasis
Guttate Psoriasis
  • Guttate psoriasis appears in small red spots on
    the skin. Its the second most common type,
    affecting 10 percent of people with psoriasis.
    Most of the time it starts during childhood or
    young adulthood.
  • The spots are small, separate, and drop-shaped.
    They often appear on the torso and limbs, but
    they can also appear on your face and scalp.
    Spots are usually not as thick as plaque
    psoriasis, but they can develop into plaque
    psoriasis over time.

Guttate psoriasis
Flexural or Inverse Psoriasis
  • Flexural or inverse psoriasis often appears in
    skinfolds, such as under the breasts or in the
    armpits or groin area. This type of psoriasis is
    red, and often shiny and smooth.
  • The sweat and moisture from skinfolds keeps this
    form of psoriasis from shedding skin scales.
    Sometimes its misdiagnosed as a fungal or
    bacterial infection. The skin-on-skin contact can
    make inverse psoriasis very uncomfortable.

Flexural or inverse psoriasis
Pustular psoriasis
  • Pustular psoriasis may affect isolated areas of
    the body, like the hands and feet, or cover most
    of the skins surface. These pustules can also
    join together and scaling occurs.
  • Some people experience cyclic periods of pustules
    and remission. While the pus is noninfectious,
    this condition can cause flu-like symptoms such
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • rapid pulse
  • muscle weakness
  • loss of appetite
  • There are three kinds of pustular psoriasis
  • von Zumbusch
  • Palmoplantar pustulosis (PPP)
  • Acropustulosis

Pustular psoriasis
Psoriatic Arthritis
  • Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is a painful and
    physically limiting condition that affects up to
    one-third of those with psoriasis. There are five
    types of PsA with varying symptoms. There is also
    no cure for this type of psoriasis.

Psoriatic arthritis
Erythrodermic Psoriasis
  • Erythrodermic psoriasis, or exfoliated psoriasis,
    is a rare psoriasis type that looks like severe
    burns. The condition is serious, and can be a
    medical emergency. You may need hospitalization
    because your body may not be able to control body

Erythrodermic psoriasis
Nail psoriasis
  • Although not an official type of psoriasis, nail
    psoriasis is a manifestation of psoriasis. The
    condition can often be confused with fungal
    infections and other infections of the nail.
  • Nail psoriasis can cause
  • Nail Pitting
  • Grooves
  • Discoloration
  • loosening or crumbling of the nail
  • thickened skin under the nail
  • colored patches or spots under the nail

Nail psoriasis
Scalp Psoriasis
  • Scalp psoriasis is common in people with plaque
    psoriasis. For some people, it may cause severe
    dandruff. For others, it can be painful, itchy,
    and very noticeable at the hairline. Scalp
    psoriasis can extend to the neck, face, and ears
    in one large patch or many smaller patches.

Scalp Psoriasis
Self-care for Psoriasis
  • Although there is no one cure for any form of
    psoriasis, remission and significant healing is
    possible. Your doctor will work with you to
    create a treatment plan that helps manage your
    condition. You can also take steps at home to
    manage psoriasis.
