Causes of Psoriasis
Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition thought to be caused by a breakdown of the immune system. It is not contagious. Aggravating and painful, psoriasis causes patches of dry, scaly skin to appear. Having psoriasis can deeply affect a person's everyday life and even relationships. The National Psoriasis Foundation estimates 2-3% of the US population suffers with chronic psoriasis.
The skin enters a state of hyper-metabolism. The psoriasis sufferer's skin cells turn over much faster than normal skin cells causing the skin to be red and irritated.
While scientists claim no cure, there are medical and homeopathic treatments available. Many people have learned how to keep this skin condition under control with nutritional and dietary solutions. Consult your trusted doctor, dermatologist or nutritionist for more information about psoriasis treatments.
