World Psoriasis Day

Every year, World Psoriasis Day, October 29th, honors those who suffer from psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis. The day aims to raise awareness and improve access to healthcare.

Psoriasis is present in 125 million people around the world. More than 8 million Americans have the disease in the United States. Psoriatic arthritis accounts for up to 30% of people with psoriasis.

Psoriasis is a systemic inflammatory disease. This skin condition can influence the skin cells' life cycle. As a result, the body has extra skin cells. These extra cells have developed itchy red patches on the skin. The red patches are often painful, in addition to being itchy. Cracked skin that occasionally bleeds, and small scaling spots are two common signs. In some instances, psoriasis causes the joints to become inflamed and stiff. Psoriatic arthritis is a condition that affects the joints.

Psoriasis' exact cause is uncertain. According to some studies, an overactive immune system plays a role. Psoriasis usually starts or gets worse when certain triggers occur. These triggers include infections, skin injury, exhaustion, Vitamin D deficiency, and heavy alcohol intake. Psoriasis can also be triggered by certain drugs. Many people with psoriasis are at a higher risk of developing other illnesses. Type 2 diabetes, metabolic syndrome, Parkinson's disease, Parkinson's disease, Parkinson's disease, and kidney disease are all typical disorders. Psoriasis is most noticeable in a person's quality of life, causing depression and other emotional difficulties.

Unfortunately, there is no cure for psoriasis, but it can go into remission, so it can go into remission. Topical corticosteroids, coal tar, moisturizers, and prescription drugs are often used to treat the disease's symptoms.
