Genital psoriasis, sexuality and natural treatments

genital psoriasis


This is a subject that is little discussed, even though it affects many people suffering from psoriasis. As part of our section Information, we take stock of the situation and try to give, as usual, some advice and food for thought.


What are the prejudices against psoriasis?

Le Psoriasis alters the appearance of the skin by causing rash and dry patches or crusts called “scales”. In today's society where beauty standards are increasingly demanding and where the norm is the way to go, having a skin disease is often difficult to cope with.

In addition, psoriasis is a little-known disease and often the victim of prejudices and preconceived ideas. It turns out that 12% of people think that psoriasis is contagious and 6% think that the disease is linked to a lack of hygiene (1). The only lack of hygiene that could contribute to psoriasis is found elsewhere: alcohol abuse, excessive exposure to the sun.

People affected by the disease are then subject to mockery and/or derogatory comments. The illness then becomes difficult to live with and alters interactions with others. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon to see cases of depression in people with psoriasis.

The look of the other may also be influenced by psoriasis caused by a tattoo or aggressive hair removal.

Psoriasis can have various causes. It can be of genetic origin since it is common for a person affected by the disease to have a family history of psoriasis. There is also a cause relating to a failure of the immune system. The latter overproduces skin cells since they regenerate too quickly. This causes scales and leads to the formation of psoriasis plaques.

Other factors can trigger psoriasis flare-ups. This could be severe stress, emotional or psychological shock, infection, etc. Tobacco and alcohol also promote attacks of psoriasis.

Furthermore, psoriasis and therefore the resulting symptoms, such as cracking or itching, can be aggravated by various frictions. They can be due to underwear (the lace found in lingerie for example), to clothing that is too tight, to penetration during sexual intercourse, to drying too aggressively with a towel, etc.

The sometimes desire to compensate for this hindrance by wearing sexy underwear can in certain cases cause outbreaks of psoriasis, particularly some slightly rough lace; you need to know how to choose your clothes and underwear without giving up on being handsome.

Finding a balance in life despite psoriasisFind a balance in life

We are born with psoriasis but it can start at any time in life, during adolescence or young adulthood or much later.

Rather than hiding, it is important to talk about the disease, show it, and break preconceived ideas by reassuring him/her that the disease is not contagious.
