Psoriasis is a chronic disorder that causes thick red plaques with silvery scales on the skin. The thick scaling is due to a rapid increase in the multiplication of skin cells, Your body produces other immune responses which can lead to swelling and the rapid production of skin cells. Psoriasis symptoms tend to increase and decrease, but certain factors can cause flare ups, including, but not limited to alcohol, stress, medications, smoking and skin trauma.
Some patients may not respond as well as others. Psoriasis lesions tend to subside after the first or subsequent treatments.. Regardless of the treatment response, recurrence is common and can be caused by a number of lifestyle factors. It is important to understand that psoriasis is a chronic condition that can only be controlled rather than cured.
