What is psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a disease in which the skin is affected. It is non-infectious, respectively - you cannot get it from a sick person. Most often, psoriasis is transmitted genetically from parents to a child, or it appears when there are problems with the immune system, alcohol abuse, or constant hypothermia.

Despite the fact that such a disease cannot die, it gives the patient a lot of trouble, primarily with the appearance, as well as affecting the internal organs, and sometimes even the spine and joints, which can lead to disability. Therefore, as soon as you have at least some symptoms of psoriasis, you should immediately consult a doctor. After treatment, the patient feels a significant relief, although it is impossible to completely cure the disease in our time. Let us highlight the main symptoms that indicate that a person develops psoriasis:

Red scaly patches appear on the skin, which are usually accompanied by severe itching.The main sites of injury are the most vulnerable parts of the body that are most often subject to friction: elbows, knees, lower back, skin between the buttocks, and also on the head. Different people have psoriasis exacerbated at different times of the year, depending on weather conditions, but mostly it happens in winter. Spots can be as very small sizes (2-3 mm), and extensive, the size of a palm. The superficial skin ball is easily peeled off, in the form of scales.

If a person is predisposed to the winter form of psoriasis, then in summer, under the influence of the sun's rays, the disease subsides, or even the spots are hidden. But those who have the summer version of the disease, suffer from the sun and heat, so they should not be zealous about being outside in the daytime during the warm season.

By separating scales under them, one can see bright red smooth skin. If, however, to remove not only an easily peeling ball of skin, but to completely remove the entire plaque, then small, small droplets of blood will come out from under it.

If the disease is not stopped in time, then fluid begins to collect under the skin in the lesions. When exfoliating the upper skin sphere, the bubbles with the liquid begin to merge into more voluminous ones. At defeat of such sites it is easy to bring an infection there and to get rot.

Sometimes the occurrence of psoriatic plaques in the place of wounds, scratches or other injuries of the skin. But this happens with an actively progressive disease.

With psoriasis of the scalp, parts of her skin are affected, dandruff appears, sometimes the disease spreads beyond the auricles, then the skin becomes wet and chapped.

As you can see, the symptoms of psoriasis are quite easy to identify. In order to make sure or reject their assumptions, you need to consult a doctor. He will make an accurate diagnosis and prescribe the necessary treatment so that the disease does not progress.
