Psoriasis - Causes, Symptoms And Natural Home Remedies For The Cure of Psoriasis.
Psoriasis is one of the most stubborn skin diseases. It is characterized by thick, red silvery scaled patches of skin. This disease may appear at any age, though it is rare in infancy and early childhood. The incidence increases throughout childhood, after the age of five years, to reach a peak at adolescence. Girls suffering from this disease outnumber boys by two to one.
Symptoms of Psoriasis.
Generally, the skin of the child suffering from psoriasis appears red and irritated and may be covered with bright silvery scales. Irritation of the skin is usually slight, but irritation of the mind may be more of a problem as the child is being constantly reminded that he is different from other children. Sometimes there is also a little itching. Scratching may cause fresh lesions. Areas usually involved are elbows, knees, the skin. behind the ears, trunk and scalp. The lesions vary in size from minute papules only just visible, to sheets covering large parts of the body. The. lesions of psoriasis are always dry and rarely become infected.
A special form, guttate psoriasis, is typically seen in children between five and '12 years old. A rash, mainly on the trunk and consisting of pink maculopapaules, appears 10-20 days after a sore throat. After a few days, the maculopapules become more typically psoriatic. .They can clear up within a few months or lead to chronic psoriasis. Some patients with long-standing psoriasis develop nail changes including small pits on the nail plate and separation of part of the nail from the nail bed. Discoloration of the nail resembling grease spots is also seen.
Recent studies have shown that psoriasis involves an abnormality in the mechanism in which the skin grows and replaces itself. This abnormality is related to the metabolism of amino acids, the protein chemicals which are nature's basic building blocks for the reproduction of cell tissues. Some authorities also believe that this disease is caused by lack of essential acids. Heredity also plays a role in the development of this disease and about one-third of patients have a positive family history.
The factors that aggravate and precipitate the outbreak of psoriasis are injury to skin in the form of cut, burn, minor abrasion, changes in the seasons, physical and emotional stress, infections and use of certain oral drugs for the treatment of other diseases.
