What Is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition that causes a rapid build up of skin cells. It often appears as red flaky patches of skin with a silvery tint around the knees, elbows and scalp, but can appear just about anywhere on the body.

Why do I have psoriasis?

It’s often hereditary – 1 in 3 people who suffer from it will also have a close relative with the condition. Sudden emotional trauma often triggers it for the first time – and stress can be a recurring factor in subsequent flare-ups. Whilst there is no clear cause or cure for Psoriasis, there are ways to manage this condition short and long term.

What should I avoid?

Easier said than done, but try to avoid the itch-scratch cycle. It can make flare-ups worse and further irritate skin.

Hot showers and long soaks while lovely, can worsen the symptoms of psoriasis. Opt for warm water and quick dips instead.

Over-washing can strip skin of its natural protective oils, and they’re what keep all that precious moisture locked in. For scalp, keep hair washing to a minimum and for face or body choose organic products free of common irritants where possible.

Hydrate skin from within. Reduce your alcohol consumption and try to drink at least one litre of water per day.
