Ways to control psoriasis

 Psoriasis is a long-term problem of the skin. However, the severity of the disease increases in winter. This quickly ends the life cycle of skin cells.

 As a result, a load of extra cells accumulates on the skin. The skin may be rough or white in places.

 The skin may crack also. The skin becomes rough like fish scales. It is an autoimmune inflammation. There can be many causes of psoriasis. Such as heredity, weakness of the immune system, etc.

Psoriasis can affect not only the skin but also other parts of the body. Usually, the nails of the elbows, knees, head, hands and feet are affected. In some cases, the scalp may be affected and the colour of the fingernails may be lost. 

Some things increase their incidence. Such as bacterial, viral or fungal infections, tonsillitis or oral infections, skin injuries, cuts, sunburn, etc. 

Some medications can also increase psoriasis, such as high blood pressure medications, malaria medications, lithium, corticosteroids, and so on. 

Smoking and alcohol consumption and physical and mental trauma can increase the incidence of psoriasis. Tattoos or vaccines can also make the disease worse. 

In these cases, psoriasis can spread throughout the body and lead to serious conditions such as erythroderma.


Psoriasis is a disease that does not heal completely. But it is possible to live a normal life by keeping this disease under control. Different types of ointments and creams are applied to the affected area. 

Some medications help control the disease. However, these drugs must be taken under the supervision of a specialist.

Domestic care of the patient:

To prevent the spread of the disease, he should refrain from taking more baths and using soap. Oily things can be used frequently. 

Coconut oil, olive oil or Vaseline can be used. If you use this, this disease will not increase much. It is also treated with ultraviolet rays. Patients often become mentally disturbed due to this disease. So counselling is needed.

Foods that increase psoriasis:

Red meat (beef, mutton, farm chicken, poultry), dairy foods, refined sugar, etc. can increase the incidence of psoriasis. 

Smoking and alcohol can also increase disease. Psoriasis is not a contagious disease. However, there is a risk of having a family history of psoriasis.

Direct sunlight and dry skin are harmful to psoriasis patients. So you can't stay in the sun for long. Keep the skin moist. 

The older the disease, the more complicated the situation becomes. Therefore, early diagnosis and doctor's advice should be taken.
