Psoriasis of the scalp is known as plaque psoriasis and can also affect the skin of the elbows and knees,the palms of hands and the soles of feet. It`s an auto-immune disease …that`s recurring (chronic) and is therefore difficult to treat. Skin cells accumulate due to accelerated growth and form layers on top of the skin.The cause is believed to be genetic and could very well be hereditary.
If one member of your family had psoriasis or still has then it is very probably to "get" psoriasis some day too. Actually, a person doesn't get psoriasis because it is writte…n in the genetic information so you can have it since the day you are born...it is not contagious so if your question was meant to mean if a person can get psoriasis just by touching a person with this condition then i can assure you that's impossible...if your question refers to triggers for psoriasis then i can tell you that stress is the most important in the list..then it comes streptococcus infections..in my case, i inherited the disease from my grandma and the triggers were stress and streptococcus infection.
Studies have proven that psoriasis is caused by 9 gene mutation. There are several types of things that trigger this kind of skin disorder. This includes drinking alcohol, str…ong family history, anxiety or stress.
The most common sign of psoriasis is a psoriasis plaque, a raised, red skin patch covered by a silvery-white coating. Eight out of 10 people with psoriasis have plaques. T…hese patches can form anywhere on your skin but are most likely to show up on your knees, elbows, lower back, and scalp. You may have several patches that join together to form a big patch. Plaques are itchy, but resist scratching them because scratching can make them become thicker. In at least half of the people who have psoriasis, the scalp is affected. Scalp psoriasis can range from mild, dandruff-like scaling to crusty plaques that extend beyond your hairline to your forehead or neck. This type of psoriasis can be very itchy. Using a medicated shampoo may help with scalp psoriasis. As many as half of all people with psoriasis experience nail changes caused by the condition. Changes in your nails may include pitting (holes), alterations in color and shape, thickening, and separation of the nail from the nail bed. About one in twenty people with psoriasis will have painful, stiff joints. This type of joint pain and swelling is called psoriatic arthritis. In many cases psoriatic arthritis affects only the fingers and toes. If you develop psoriatic arthritis, you will almost certainly experience nail changes. In rare cases, this form of arthritis can be severe and affect the joints in your spine as well. Psoriasis does not appear to directly cause any of these diseases, but it does put you at higher risk for developing them. Studies show that having psoriasis increases your risk of stroke and diabetes by about 40 percent. If you are 30 years old and you have severe psoriasis, your chances of having a heart attack are tripled. Take steps to lower your risk and protect your health by eating a heart-smart diet, getting regular exercise, and controlling your weight. Having psoriasis can be stressful. Studies show that people with psoriasis may have higher rates of depression and anxiety.
Anybody can get Psoriasis but the most targeted people are people that are often stressed, smoking, or often out in dry weather.
