The skin is considered to be the biggest organ in the body, covering about 80% of the total body surface. This means that the skin is easily exposed since it covers most of the body, making it the first thing anyone would see when they interact with other people. Using our visual abilities, the skin is easily seen and this makes the skin quite important. The horrors of skin disease often plague a lot of people and even more dread the thought of having scars, lesions, and wounds on the skin. With the various bacteria and viruses going around, you can never tell what kind of illness that can affect you – including your skin. One of the most well-recognized skin diseases is psoriasis which is often considered as troublesome and dreadful by a lot of people. Psoriasis is a skin condition that often leads to the appearance of plaques on the skin, making it look flaky and scaly. These dry flakes located on the skin can cause scaling and are speculated to be caused by the abnormally fast proliferation of the skin cells due to the inflammatory response of the specialized WBCs or white blood cells known as “lymphocytes”. This skin disease often affects areas like the scalp, the elbows, and the knees, but it can also affect other areas such as the nape and the back. The severity of psoriasis can vary, ranging from mild up to severe. Psoriasis can be as minor as they may not even be detected by the person who has it or it can also be severe that it can cover the entirety of a person’s skin, leading to low self-esteem and a huge hit on someone’s self-confidence since the skin is the first thing that anyone sees in a person. Psoriasis is found to be an incurable and chronic skin disease. While it has a variable course, psoriasis can either improve or worsen, depending on the interventions and the measures used to manage it. It’s not surprising that psoriasis can remain dormant for years or even stay in remission for many years. However, there are also those people who have reported the worsening of psoriasis due to a number of factors like the change in weather conditions, especially during the winter season. While it may be a dreadful disease for many people, psoriasis is by no means contagious and there are a number of ways that you can employ to decrease your risk of developing this skin disorder. Aside from that, thorough management of the skin disease can also ensure a good outlook on the severity of psoriasis by following the medication regimen prescribed by your physician, eating a balanced diet, staying away from risk factors that increase the likelihood of developing psoriasis, and a whole lot more. In this book, you’ll be learning everything about the skin disease - Psoriasis and how to deal with it. This would include details about psoriasis, the signs and symptoms of this disease, the number of diagnostic tests available to detect psoriasis, and how to manage psoriasis using medical intervention and even using a number of home remedies to treat this skin disease
