Causes of Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a skin condition. In this condition, you will notice prolonged inflammation of the skin and it would look more like a dry type of skin.

You will notice that the skin is chaffed beyond recognition and remnants of dead cells continuously fall from the skin. You will feel irritated by the burning and itching sensation that it causes on the skin.

Why this disease attacks human skin still continues to be a mystery though. Psoriasis is not a contagious disease and will not spread from one individual to another.

It is an embarrassing condition, when you are forced to continuously scratch the itching parts, while the dead skin cells fall from the place where you scratch. The skin will appear cracked, chaffed and untidy. Excessive Psoriasis will also lead to dandruff in your hair.

Psoriasis itself doesn’t affect the health of a person, though it can occur in any individual irrespective of sex or age.  It is present in at least 2 per cent of the entire population of the world, though many people suffering from mild conditions may not even know that they are suffering from Psoriasis.

Psoriasis can occur at any time during your life, right from 20 to 60 years. Psoriasis is best treated by natural products and herbs, since this skin condition is inflammatory in nature and can react dangerously to chemicals.

Being a skin disease, it can leave the chaffed skin with lesions, sometimes with pink colored blisters, because of dry and dead skin buildup. The patches of the disease commonly occur on knees, lower back, elbows and groin region. Though it is considered as a genetic disorder, more than 6 million Americans suffer from this condition.

Primrose Oil

The condition is best treated psoriasis through natural herbal products. These include some relaxing oils, like Primrose Oil, Olive Oil etc., which will help reduce the irritation.  For internal consumption, you should take lots of foods with antioxidant qualities like fruits and vegetables, and keep your system hydrated, by taking lots of water.

Chemical applications on the affected portions can only aggravate the situation and as such, take extreme care while using gels and other topical applications.
