Home Remedies for Psoriasis Causes, Symptoms,
Can Cure Naturally At Home
Among the many skin problems, Psoriasis is a very
common and dreadful disease where the incidence
rate is found to be 1.02 in India. This is an
immune-mediated disease that causes scaly patches
that appear over the skin. It causes the cells to
build up over the skin surface. These extra cells
form scales and red patches, that are itchy in
nature. These patches may be dry or oozing and
sometimes painful as well. The disease has a
chronic nature that often comes and disappears.
There is no permanent cure for the disease,
however, the symptoms can be managed.  It
occurs in both the genders and all age groups.
Psoriasis is not a contagious disease. Plaque
psoriasis is the most common type of psoriasis.
  • Although psoriasis occurs to any part of the
    body, it commonly occurs in the following areas
  • Scalp
  • Elbows
  • Knees 
  • Underarms
  • Lower back
  • Finger and toenails
  • Genital area
  • Navel
  • Between buttocks
  • Knuckles
  • Other body folds

What are the causes of psoriasis? Psoriasis is
an autoimmune disease. So the disease pops up
when there is a compromise in the immune
system.   The immune system is made up of a
collaboration between cells and proteins that
work together to prevent any sort of infections
to the body. The development of all cells of the
immune system happens in the bone marrow with a
hematopoietic stem cell. Typically, there are two
important cells namely, T cells and B cells. Any
trigger causes these cells to fight against the
infections. They produce a chemical that causes
inflammation.  The immune system involves a type
of cells known as T cells. A trigger causes the T
cells to behave as if they are fighting an
infection or healing a wound. They produce
chemicals that cause inflammation. This leads to
excess growth of skin cells and creates
inflammation.  What triggers this condition is
still not clear. On a general note, people with
extreme habits of smoking, alcohol,
infection/allergy, injuries to the skin, drastic
hormonal changes, stress, and anxiety are more
prone to show up this disease In some cases,
medications like indomethacin, quinidine, etc.
can also be a leading cause of psoriasis. People
who follow an adverse diet habit are most prone
to suffer from psoriasis. An extreme change in
weather conditions also easily effects the skin
and can lead to the disease.

psoriasis, both dead and live cells get collected
over the surface.
