Psoriasis: the Autoimmune Disease
Psoriasis is not a transmitted disease because it has no infection. Therefore, contacting to patients or even directly touching psoriasis rash does not cause any transmission.
According to recent research, psoriasis is occurred by two factors.
Firstly, it comes from genetics or gene, but this factor is rare.
Secondly, the common factor is an autoimmune disease.
It is found that psoriasis is occurred by white blood cell abnormalities in function. Therefore, it destroys our skin cells causing rapidly skin cell replication and chronic skin inflammation.
Psoriasis rash develops bumpy red, well-circumscribed, and white or silvery-scaled patches. As a result, it is called psoriasis. The locations are around head, face, hands, feet, nails, and foldable joints.
As psoriasis is the autoimmune disease, any factors stimulate abnormal immune system can impair its symptoms such as
2. Not enough sleep
5. Food allergies
6. Alcohol drinking
8. Processed foods, flavor enhancers, color additives, taste enhancers, and preservatives.
All of these factors can make your symptoms becoming worse.
Therefore, apart from topical and oral drugs, lasers, and light therapy, treatment of psoriasis must focus on avoiding those factors as well.
