National Psoriasis Awareness Month
Psoriasis is a chronic, inflammatory skin condition that affects people of all ages. The exact cause of psoriasis is unknown, but it is believed to be related to an overactive immune system. Psoriasis can cause red, scaly patches on the skin that are often itchy and painful. There is no cure for psoriasis, but there are treatments that can help to control the symptoms.
There are a number of different treatment options available for psoriasis, including topical creams and ointments, phototherapy, and oral medications. Some people with mild psoriasis may only need to use over-the-counter (OTC) treatments, while others with more severe cases may need prescription medication.
Psoriasis can be a lifelong condition, so it is important to find a treatment that works for you and stick with it.
There are also a few things you can do to help prevent psoriasis flare-ups and keep your skin healthy. Avoiding triggers, such as smoking and excessive alcohol consumption, can help. Psoriasis can also be aggravated by stress, so finding ways to relax and manage stress may also help.
If you think you might have psoriasis, it is important to see a doctor for a diagnosis. Psoriasis can look like other skin conditions, so it is important to get an accurate diagnosis so you can get the right treatment. There are a number of different treatments available for psoriasis, so there is sure to be one that will work for you.
