What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a chronic skin disorder marked by raised areas of thickened skin and lesions prepared up of dead skin cells.
Psoriasis (sore-EYE-ah-sis) is a medical form that occurs when skin cells grow up too quickly. Faulty signals in the immune system cause new skin cells to form in days rather than weeks. The body does not shack these excess skin cells, so the cells pile up on the surface of the skin and lesions form.
signs and symptoms of psoriasis:
The lesions vary in look with the type of psoriasis. There are five types of psoriasis: Plaque, guttate, pustular, inverse, and erythrodermic. Around 80% of people living with psoriasis have plaque (plak) psoriasis, also called “psoriasis vulgaris.” Plaque psoriasis causes patches of bulky, scaly skin that may be white, silvery, or red. Called plaques (plax), these patches can develop anywhere on the skin. The mainly common areas to find plaques are the elbows, knees, lower back, and scalp. Psoriasis also can affect the nails. About 50% of people who develop psoriasis see changes in their fingernails and/or toenails. If the nails begin to pull away from the nail bed or develop pitting, ridges, or a yellowish-orange color, this could be a sign of psoriatic (sore-EE-at-ic) arthritis. Without treatment, psoriatic arthritis can progress and become debilitating. It is essential to see a dermatologist if nail changes begin or joint pain develops. Early treatment can avoid joint deterioration.
Causes of psoriasis:
Psoriasis is not contagious. You cannot get psoriasis from touching somebody who has psoriasis. Psoriasis is a lot more complex.
Scientists are still studying what happen when psoriasis develops. The person’s immune system and genes play key roles. In studying the immune system, scientists discovered that when a person has psoriasis, the T cells (a kind of white blood cell that fights unwanted invaders such as bacteria and viruses) mistakenly trigger a reaction in the skin cells. This is why you can hear psoriasis referred to as a “T cell-mediated disease.”
This reaction activates a series of events, causing new skin cells to form in days rather than weeks. The reason T cells activate this reaction seems to lie in our DNA. citizens who develop psoriasis inherit genes that cause psoriasis. Unlike some autoimmune circumstances, it appears that many genes are involved in psoriasis.
When do people get psoriasis?
Psoriasis can start at any age, from childhood through the golden years. There are, however, times when psoriasis is most likely to develop. Most people first see psoriasis between 15 and 30 years of age. About 75% develop psoriasis before they turn 40. a further common time for psoriasis to begin is between 50 and 60 years of age.
What is Eczema?
Eczema is a type of dermatitis or swelling of the epidermis (the external layer of the skin).
The term eczema is generally applied to a range of persistent skin conditions. These comprise dryness and recurring skin rashes that are characterized by one or more of these symptoms: redness, skin edema (swelling), itching and dryness, crusting, flaking, blistering, cracking, oozing, or bleeding. Areas of temporary skin discoloration may appear and are sometimes due to healed injuries. Scratching open a healing lesion may result in scarring and may enlarge the rash.
The hygiene hypothesis postulates that the cause of asthma, eczema, and other allergic diseases is an uncommonly clean environment. It is supported by epidemiologic studies for asthma. The hypothesis states that exposure to bacteria and other immune system modulators is important during development, and missing out on this exposure increases risk for asthma and allergy.
Although it has been suggested that eczema may fewtimes from time to time be an allergic reaction to the excrement from house dust mites.
The situation (also called atopic eczema or infantile eczema) affects people with dry and rough skin (keratosis pilaris) & may be caused by a variety of allergens. It often starts in early babyhood, around three months of age, and tends to run in atopic families.
Possible causes :
Food allergy, which plays an key role in children under one year but not in adults
Cow's milk, hen's eggs and peanuts are the foods most likely to exacerbate childhood eczema home dust mites tend to aggravate eczema in grown-up children and adults.
Pet dander exposure, such as to cats, dogs and other furry animals, may play a role
Certain bacteria may cause sudden, severe outbreaks of eczema
