It's a Common Skin Condition, But What Triggers Psoriasis?

qsota.com
Psoriasis is a serious skin problem that alters the life cycle of your skin cells. In summary, it is the rapid build up of extra cells on the skin's surface, causing the formation of thick and silvery scales which are dry and itchy, often showing red patches that can be painful.

Psoriasis sometimes gets better and may disappear but then returns after a while, sometimes looking worse. It is said to be incurable and may even spread across wide areas of the skin. It can thus dampen your self confidence.

Some Vital Info

But there are ways to get some  relief, like cortisone creams (ask your doctor about it) and exposure to gentle sunlight in the early mornings. 

It's said to be a common skin condition, so if you're affected remember that lots of other people have it, too--especially those between 15 to 35. 

The exact cause isn't certain yet, but the National Psoriasis Foundation in the US said that some 10 percent of Americans can possibly get it through their genes, but only 2 to 3 percent of the 10 percent actually get it. So it's not that rampant. Yet, it poses a real problem to those who do have it.

Psoriasis Trigger

But take note--among the main triggers for psoriasis are too much stress and tension. If you want relief or probable prevention, stay relaxed at all times. Avoid too much stress as much as possible. And exercise regularly to reduce stress and to get you a healthy fit life and wellness.
