  • What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is basically a skin condition where your skin becomes scaly and thick. It is basically an auto immune disease and it causes inflammation in your skin. Psoriasis is a chronic disease. It can start unexpectedly and you have to do treatment for it.

Once upon a time humans thought that psoriasis is type of leprosy and back then people used to maintain distance from a psoriasis affected person. In my life I never saw any discrimination with psoriasis patient but my mother saw the discrimination in her childhood days.

My mother was from rural area of Uttarpradesh. She was lived in an infamous village. She did not get better opportunities when she was young. The villagers used to have their own tradition and rituals and their own rule.
Back then one of the villagers had psoriasis. But He did not know what it is, but the others thought that he had some kind of leprosy disease and they made him separated from others. His family was also excluded from the village.

The villagers were not ready to allow him and his family inside the village. They made him an outsider. He was not allowed to do any work in that state. He and his total family were not even allowed to drive water from pond. His children were not allowed to play with other kids even go to school with other children. The whole family was in
distress. They were just not treated as humans anymore. Back then psoriasis was treated like leprosy. It was filled with superstitions.

Psoriasis in general is not contagious but back then people thought that it was like that so, they avoid patient’s touch. But now days the scenario is changed, people become more companionate about psoriasis patient they now do not treat them like animals.
Now coming to the second point which is:

  • The Reasons of Psoriasis:

1. There are many reasons around this. But most common reason may be the genetic history.

2. If you have noticed that earlier I also have said psoriasis as genetically transmitted diseases. So, if you have psoriasis history in your family then you will have the chance to be infected.

3. Psoriasis is basically a skin condition where the skin inflammation is the main thing. Those who have psoriasis, you have already known that your diseases is an autoimmune diseases.
In normal condition body your immune system is responsible to attack foreign viruses or bacteria. But in psoriasis your immune system is mistakenly destroy the healthy cells instead of immune cells. As a result our immune system creates inflammation and itchy skin.

In psoriasis, it actually takes 30 days to regenerate new cells on the place of the old cells. Once the new cell is grown, the old cell is replaced with that new cell.
