What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a degenerative skin disorder. The noticeable symptom of this medical skin disorder is the skin signs in the form of elevated spots on the service of the skin. The most common locations of these patches are elbows and knees and the symptoms stay in that areas even during the remission state of the illness; however when the disease activates the skin elements may appear everywhere including head, face, under hair, etc. In remission, this plaque looks red. In off-remission phase, the white crust over the patches become really thick and it covers redness. In those cases, psoriasis signs become dense, concentrated, grey-white and. The congealing of the skin elements in case of psoriasis resulted from the significantly enlarged protoplasm’s and cytoplasm’s elements of the sick skin cells.
Typically, an active cell from dermis transports uphill. During this journey, the cell is losing its core and perishes. These perished cells contain a special form of a protein known as keratin. Then these full of keratin dead cells shed out from the epidermis and new-born cells appear in the deep layer of the dermis and start the same process, which usually takes 28 days or 1 moon month. In the organism impacted by psoriasis, the cells’ life cycle is significantly shorter than normal. It could be as short as 3-4 days depending on the severity of the disease. but in psoriasis, it is greatly speeded up to 3-4 day cycle. While the old cells did not shed off the skin the new-born cells already coming up to the surface and perishing. It creates a “crowd” of dead skin cells resulted in the symptoms of the illness.
If you distressed from the red flaky elements over the skin that attract public attention and make you feel discomfiture – you are in the right place. If your patches located on the elbows and knees and sometimes travel over the whole body, if the patches look like grey-to-white flakes, then most likely you are suffering from this skin problem and 99% that you know that, because psoriasis is a chronic disease.
Suffering from this medical condition is not only a cosmetic challenge but also somatic and emotional.
