FAQ About Psoriasis
Risk factors for the spread of psoriasis:Psoriasis tends to spread and worsen when left untreated. So treating psoriasis can significantly reduce the risk that it will spread or that the next flare-up will be worse than the last. A family history of psoriasis, another immune system disorder, smoking, trauma to the skin, and exposure to many causes of psoriasis are additional risk factors that may cause the spread of psoriasis.
Triggers for psoriasis:
Many people prone to psoriasis may be symptom-free for years until the disease is triggered by some environmental factor. Common psoriasis triggers include:
Infections such as strep throat or skin infections. Weather, especially cold and dry conditions. Injury to the skin, such as a cut or scratch, insect bite, or severe sunburn. Mental stress. Smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke. Regular consumption of alcohol. Certain medications.
There are several types of psoriasis, and each of them is characterized by different symptoms:Psoriasis Vulgaris – characterized by scales in the area of the joints and scalp, knees, and nails. Psoriasis Inversa (reversed) – characterized by scaling in internal areas and folds such as the armpit, groin, navel, and elbow fold. Gutta Psoriasis – characterized by small red dots, appears mainly in children, often after an acute infection such as strep throat caused by a streptococcal bacterium. Arthritic Psoriasis – characterized as psoriasis accompanied by arthritis. Pustular Psoriasis – characterized by lesions containing pus on the palms of the hands and feet (zumbush). The pus does not contain bacteria and therefore is not contagious. There is a subtype called generalized postural psoriasis, which is more aggressive, often after high heat waves reaching up to 40 degrees. Psoriasis Erythroderma– characterized by psoriasis lesions all over the body and erythematous (red) skin. It may occur after rapid discontinuation of systemic steroids.
