Psoriasis causes and symptoms

Psoriasis causes: how does psoriasis start?

Patients suffering from psoriasis carry it within them. Indeed, psoriasis is a genetic disease. Psoriasis officially affects 2 to 5% of the population. It concerns both men and women. They all have a bouquet of genes structured in a particular way. It is this bouquet that makes it susceptible to developing the disease at any period of life.

On the other hand, you can have this bouquet of genes and never trigger a psoriasis flare-up. In fact, the psoriasis triggers are diverse. They most often arise from stress or psychological shock, whether conscious or not. A psoriasis attack can also occur following medication.

This inflammatory disease do not discriminate against anyone. Regardless of the patient's gender, skin color, social category or even age. However, psoriasis frequently appears during adolescence.

Psoriasis, between flare-ups and periods of remission

He may experience only one crisis in his life. But it can also be permanent or quasi-permanent. The phases of psoriasis flare-ups are sometimes followed by phases of remission more or less long or spaced apart. Thus, it is currently impossible to act on the root causes of psoriasis (DNA). On the other hand, it is possible to act on triggering factors such as stress. Above all, it will be necessary to treat psoriasis in order to resolve its symptoms.

Psoriasis and stress

Mild psoriasis, stress is a causeAs mentioned previously, stress is a major trigger for psoriasis. This is why it is essential to fight against this stress. Many natural techniques exist. Let us mention here relaxation, controlled breathing or even meditation. However, in cases where this is not sufficient, it is also possible to call on specialists, like a psychologist.

Food supplements against stress are also welcome. They will act on a cause of psoriasis. However, they will not make the redness and scales disappear. They will be useful to better prevent a subsequent flare-up.


What are the symptoms of psoriasis?

This autoimmune disease cause the overproduction of epidermal cells. Instead of reproducing every 28 days, these cells accelerate this rate. It can be upgraded to renewal every 3-5 days. As a result, the phenomenon causes dead cells to pile up on the skin. We then talk about dander. These scales are not eliminated quickly enough. They thus cause psoriasis plaques or drops.

Additionally, psoriasis can also cause lesions, red patches.

Psoriasis flare-ups are most often accompanied by itching. They can be very strong and impact the quality of life.

In all cases, the unsightly appearance of the disease often impacts the patient morale. Psoriasis can even lead to depression.


What disease is psoriasis like? Eczema, what is the difference?

Differentiate psoriasis and eczema under the microscopeVisually, psoriasis and eczema are often quite similar. These two conditions have long been confused. The name psoriasis comes from the Greek “psora”. It means “to scrape, to turn into dust”. This refers to the phenomenon of flaking. The scales fall off the skin in fine particles. This is also the case for eczema. But this explains why scabies and leprosy were previously classified in the same category of “psoric rash”.

However, the causes of psoriasis and eczema are different.

Eczema, also called atopic dermatitis, often finds its origin in an allergy of some kind. It is therefore essential to establish a clear diagnosis of the disease by a dermatologist. In fact, they only need to identify an allergy and eliminate the cause. The eczema will then no longer reappear. However, it will be appropriate toeliminate symptoms, redness and scales, beforehand.

In fact, the treatments for psoriasis or eczema are most often the same. It's logic. They fight the same symptoms. We will discuss a little further on the best methods, remedies and treatments to combat psoriasis (and eczema).

What are the different forms of psoriasis?

We must distinguish the forms of psoriasis and their severity. The forms of psoriasis relate to the typicality of the symptoms. As for the severity of psoriasis, it is measured by percentage of body surface area affected by the disease.

The different forms of psoriasis

In almost 90% of cases, psoriasis presents in the form of plates. It can also take the form of small drops scattered on the skin. We then talk about guttate psoriasis. There are also other, much rarer forms of the disease.

Erythrodermic psoriasis for example causes not only superficial lesions, but downright plaques. These look like burns. It is a serious form of psoriasis.

Let us also mention the psoriatic arthritis. The disease then affects the joints. Psoriatic arthritis is a painful form of the condition. It affects “only” 2% of psoriatics, between 30 and 50 years old.

Severity levels of psoriasis

PASI score for psoriasis severity diagnosisGenerally psoriasis can be classified as mild, moderate or even severe. It all depends on the percentage of body surface area impacted by psoriasis. The surface area of ​​a hand represents 1% of our body.

Mild psoriasis, elbows, knees, lower back

He touches less than 5% of the body surface. It is most often located on friction zones. The areas of the elbows, knees and even the lower back are often affected.

This autoimmune disease is certainly most often triggered by stress. However, since the skin is fragile, it is also sensitive to friction. She likens them to an attack on the skin. To protect itself, the body then begins a phase of overproduction of cells.

This is why, typically, the most classic areas affected are the elbows, knees and lower back. It is therefore appropriate to observe their daily behavior. We can thus try to reduce this friction. In some cases, irritating or tight-fitting clothing is the cause of a flare-up.

Moderate psoriasis

He touches less than 10% of the body surface.

Severe psoriasis

In this case, psoriasis affects more than 10% of the surface of the body. It can even completely cover certain parts. This is particularly the case for scalp psoriasis. The plates then form like a helmet on the scalp.

The PASI score

It is the most reliable index for measuring the severity of psoriasis. THE STEPS (Psoriasis Area and Severity Index) takes into account 4 different parameters:

  • surface bodily harm,
  • degree of redness, 
  • thickening
  • and level of flaking.

The PASI score ranges between 0 and 72. It can be established by a dermatologist. It is also performed directly in the hospital in cases of severe psoriasis, close to 72.

magical disappearance mild psoriasisAlthough the causes of psoriasis may disappear, the symptoms of redness and flakes, they continue. It is appropriate toact to eliminate them.

Is psoriasis (mild or not) contagious?

Mild, moderate or severe, psoriasis is in no way contagious. It can, however, be passed on to one's children. Generally 30% of people with psoriasis are hereditary. So 70% is due to a genetic “accident”.
