Psoriasis (सोरायसिस) is a long-lasting autoimmune disease characterized by patches of abnormal skin. These skin patches are typically red, dry, itchy, and scaly. On people with darker skin, the patches may be purple in color. Psoriasis varies in severity from small, localized patches to complete body coverage. Injury to the skin can trigger psoriatic skin changes at that spot, which is known as the Koebner phenomenon. While no cure is available for psoriasis, Siddha Spirituality of Swami Hardas Life System wishes that our readers read this article carefully and know and learn alternative remedies to overcome the problem.
Psoriasis Meaning (सोरायसिस का अर्थ)
The word psoriasis is from Greek ψωρίασις, meaning “itching condition” or “being itchy” from psora, “itch” and -iasis, “action, condition”.
Psoriasis Types (सोरायसिस के प्रकार)
There are five main types of psoriasis:
- Pustular, and
Plaque psoriasis, also known as psoriasis vulgaris, makes up about 90 percent of cases. It typically presents as red patches with white scales on top. Areas of the body most commonly affected are the back of the forearms, shins, navel area, and scalp.
Guttate psoriasis has drop-shaped lesions. Pustular psoriasis presents as small non-infectious pus-filled blisters.
Inverse psoriasis forms red patches in skin folds.
Erythrodermic psoriasis occurs when the rash becomes very widespread and can develop from any of the other types. Fingernails and toenails are affected by most people with psoriasis at some point in time. This may include pits in the nails or changes in nail color.
Is Psoriasis curable (क्या सोरायसिस का इलाज संभव है)
There is no cure for psoriasis; however, various treatments and remedies can help control the symptoms. These treatments include:
- Steroid creams
- Vitamin D3 cream
- Ultraviolet light
- Immune system suppressing medications, such as methotrexate
About 75 percent of skin involvement improves with creams alone. The disease affects two to four percent of the population. Men and women are affected with equal frequency. The disease may begin at any age but typically starts in adulthood. Psoriasis is associated with:
Psoriatic arthritis affects up to 30 percent of individuals with psoriasis.
Psoriasis Symptoms (सोरायसिस के लक्षण)
Plaque psoriasis (प्लाक सोरायसिस)
Psoriasis vulgaris, also known as chronic stationary psoriasis or plaque-like psoriasis, is the most common form and affects 85%–90% of people with psoriasis. Plaque psoriasis typically appears as raised areas of inflamed skin covered with silvery-white scaly skin e.g. the elbows, knees, scalp, and back.
Other forms (अन्य रूप)
Additional types of psoriasis comprise approximately 10% of cases. They include pustular, inverse, napkin, guttate, oral, and seborrheic-like forms.
Pustular psoriasis (पुष्ठीय सोरायसिस)
Pustular psoriasis appears as raised bumps filled with noninfectious pus. The skin under and surrounding the pustules or pus is red and tender.
Inverse psoriasis (उलटा सोरायसिस)
Inverse psoriasis, also known as flexural psoriasis, appears as smooth, inflamed patches of skin. The patches frequently affect:
- Skin folds, particularly around the genitals (between the thigh and groin)
- The armpits
- In the skin folds of an overweight abdomen – known as panniculus
- Between the buttocks in the intergluteal cleft
- Under the breasts in the inframammary fold
Heat, trauma, and infection are thought to play a role in the development of this atypical form of psoriasis.
Napkin psoriasis (नैपकिन सोरायसिस)
It is a subtype of psoriasis common in infants characterized by red papules with silver scale in the diaper area that may extend to the torso or limbs. Napkin psoriasis is often misdiagnosed as napkin dermatitis.
Guttate psoriasis (गुटेट सोरायसिस)
Guttate psoriasis is characterized by numerous small, scaly, red or pink, droplet-like lesions (papules). These numerous spots of psoriasis appear over large areas of the body, primarily the trunk, but also the limbs and scalp. Guttate psoriasis is often triggered by a streptococcal infection, typically streptococcal pharyngitis. The reverse is not true.
Mouth psoriasis (मुंह सोरायसिस)
Psoriasis in the mouth is very rare, in contrast to lichen planus, another common papulosquamous disorder that commonly involves both the skin and mouth. When it involves the oral mucosa i.e. the lining of the mouth, it may be asymptomatic, but it may appear as white or grey-yellow plaques. Fissured tongue is the most common finding in those with oral psoriasis and has been reported to occur in 6.5–20% of people affecting the skin.
Seborrheic-like psoriasis (सेबोरहाइक-जैसे सोरायसिस)
Seborrheic-Like psoriasis is a common form with clinical aspects and seborrheic dermatitis, and it may be difficult to distinguish from the latter. This form typically manifests as red plaques with greasy scales in areas of higher sebum production such as:
- Skin folds next to the nose
- The skin surrounding the mouth
- The skin on the chest above the sternum, and in skin folds
Psoriatic arthritis (सोरियाटिक गठिया)
Psoriatic arthritis is a form of chronic inflammatory arthritis that has a highly variable clinical presentation and frequently occurs in association with skin and nail psoriasis. It typically involves painful inflammation of the joints and surrounding connective tissue and can occur in any joint, but most commonly affects the joints of the fingers and toes.
Psoriatic arthritis can also affect:
- Spine (spondylitis)
- Sacroiliac joint (sacroiliitis)
About 30% of individuals with psoriasis will develop psoriatic arthritis. Skin manifestations tend to occur before arthritic manifestations in about 75% of cases.
Nail Psoriasis (नाखून सोरायसिस)
Psoriasis can affect the nails and produces a variety of changes in the appearance of finger and toenails. Nail psoriasis occurs in 40–45% of people affecting the skin and has a lifetime incidence of 80–90% in those with psoriatic arthritis. These changes include:
- Pitting of the nails
- Whitening of the nail
- Small areas of bleeding from capillaries under the nail
- Yellow-reddish discoloration of the nails known as the oil drop or salmon spots
- Dryness of the skin
- Thickening of the skin under the nail
- Loosening and separation of the nail
- Crumbling of the nail
Medical signs (चिकित्सा संकेत)
In addition to the appearance and distribution of the rash, specific medical signs may be used by medical practitioners to assist with diagnosis. These may include:
- Auspitz’s sign
- Koebner phenomenon i.e. psoriatic skin lesions induced by trauma to the skin
- Itching and pain localized to papules and plaques
Psoriasis Causes (सोरायसिस के कारण)
The cause is not fully understood, but a number of theories include:
Around one-third of people with psoriasis report a family history of the disease, and researchers have identified genetic loci associated with the condition. Identical twin studies suggest a 70% chance of a twin developing psoriasis if the other twin has the disorder. The risk is around 20% for nonidentical twins. These findings suggest both genetic susceptibility and an environmental response in developing psoriasis.
Lifestyle (जीवन शैली)
Conditions reported as worsening the disease include chronic infections, stress, and changes in season and climate. Others that might worsen the condition include:
- Hot water
- Scratching psoriasis skin lesions
- Skin dryness
- Excessive alcohol consumption
- Cigarette smoking
The effects of stopping cigarette smoking or alcohol misuse have yet to be studied as of 2019.
The rate of psoriasis in HIV-positive individuals is comparable to that of HIV-negative individuals. A much higher rate of psoriatic arthritis occurs in HIV-positive individuals with psoriasis than in those without the infection.
Psoriasis in those with HIV/AIDS is often severe and may be untreatable with conventional therapy. In those with long-term, well-controlled psoriasis, new HIV infection can trigger a severe flare of psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis.
Psoriasis has been described as occurring after strep throat and may be worsened by skin or gut colonization with Staphylococcus aureus, Malassezia, and Candida albicans.
Psoriasis Medications (सोरायसिस दवाएं)
Drug-induced psoriasis may occur with:
- Antimalarial medications
- Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
- Calcium channel blockers
- Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor
- Lipid-lowering medications
- Paradoxically TNF inhibitors such as infliximab or adalimumab
Withdrawal of corticosteroids (topical steroid cream) can aggravate psoriasis due to the rebound effect.
Psoriasis Diagnosis (सोरायसिस का निदान)
A diagnosis is usually based on the appearance of the skin. Skin characteristics typical are scaly, erythematous plaques, papules, or patches of skin that may be painful and itchy.
No special blood tests or diagnostic procedures are usually required to make the diagnosis.
The differential diagnosis includes dermatological conditions similar in appearances such as:
- Discoid eczema
- Seborrheic eczema
- Pityriasis rosea
- Nail fungus
- Cutaneous T cell lymphoma
Dermatologic manifestations of systemic illnesses such as the rash of secondary syphilis may also be confused with psoriasis.
If the clinical diagnosis is uncertain, a skin biopsy or scraping may be performed to rule out other disorders and to confirm the diagnosis.
Psoriasis Management (सोरायसिस का प्रबंधन)
Topical agents (सामयिक एजेंट)
These corticosteroid preparations are the most effective agents when used continuously for 8 weeks. Greater benefit has been observed with very potent corticosteroids when compared to potent corticosteroids. The agents include:
Corticosteroid monotherapy (कॉर्टिकोस्टेरॉइड मोनोथेरेपी)
For psoriasis of the scalp, a 2016 review found dual therapy or corticosteroid monotherapy to be more effective and safer.
Emollients (शांत करनेवाली दवा)
Moisturizers and emollients such as mineral oil, petroleum jelly, calcipotriol, and decubal were found to increase the clearance of psoriatic plaques, however, some emollients have been shown to be even more effective at clearing psoriatic plaques when combined with phototherapy.
Balneotherapy (स्नान चिकित्सा)
Another topical therapy is a form of balneotherapy, which involves daily baths in the Dead Sea, which is usually done for four weeks with the benefit attributed to sun exposure and specifically UVB light. This is cost-effective and it has been propagated as an effective way to treat this disease without medication.
UV Phototherapy (यूवी फोटोथेरेपी)
Phototherapy in the form of sunlight has long been used for psoriasis. UVB Wavelengths of 311–313 nanometers are most effective, and special lamps have been developed for this application. The exposure time should be controlled to avoid overexposure and the burning of the skin. The UVB lamps should have a timer that will turn off the lamp when the timer ends.
One of the problems with clinical phototherapy is the difficulty many people have gaining access to a facility. Indoor tanning resources are almost ubiquitous today and could be considered as a means for people to get UV exposure when dermatologist provided phototherapy is not available.
Systemic agents (प्रणालीगत एजेंट)
A 2017 meta-analysis found that ixekizumab, secukinumab, brodalumab, guselkumab, certolizumab, and ustekinumab were the most effective biologics for treating psoriasis.
Another treatment for moderate to severe is fumaric acid esters (FAE) which may be similar in effectiveness to methotrexate.
Psoriasis Surgery (सोरायसिस सर्जरी)
Limited evidence suggests the removal of the tonsils may benefit people with:
- Chronic plaque
- Palmoplantar pustulosis
Psoriasis Diet (सोरायसिस आहार)
Uncontrolled studies have suggested that individuals affected with this disease may benefit from a diet supplemented with fish oil rich in eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA).
A low-calorie diet appears to improve the severity. Diet recommendations include consumption of cold-water fish (preferably wild fish, not farmed) such as salmon, herring, and mackerel; extra virgin olive oil; legumes; vegetables; fruits; and whole grains; and avoid consumption of alcohol, red meat, and dairy products (due to their saturated fat). The effect of consumption of caffeine including coffee, black tea, mate, and dark chocolate remains to be determined.
There is a higher rate of celiac disease among people with psoriasis. When adopting a gluten-free diet, disease severity generally decreases in people with celiac disease and those with anti-gliadin antibodies.
Psoriasis in children (बच्चों में सोरायसिस)
The rate of psoriasis varies according to age, region, and ethnicity. It can occur at any age, although it most commonly appears for the first time between the ages of 15 and 25 years, which affects both sexes equally.
Psoriasis affects about 6.7 million Americans and occurs more frequently in adults.
People with inflammatory bowel disease such as Crohn disease or ulcerative colitis are at an increased risk of developing this disease.
Psoriasis is more common in countries farther from the equator. Persons of white European ancestry are more likely to have this disease and the condition is relatively uncommon in African Americans and extremely uncommon in Native Americans.
Psoriasis treatment cost (सोरायसिस उपचार की लागत)
The annual cost for treating psoriasis in the United States is estimated as high as $32.5billion, including $12.2billion indirect costs. Pharmacy costs are the main source of direct expense, with biologic therapy the most prevalent.
These costs increase significantly when co-morbid conditions such as heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, lung disease, and psychiatric disorders are factored in. Expenses linked to co-morbidities are estimated at an additional $23,000 per person per year.
Psoriasis Home remedies (सोरायसिस के घरेलू उपचार)
If you want to try using home remedies as a complement to your traditional treatment, be sure to tell your doctor, to make sure it won’t interfere with your medications and to ensure it’s safe, especially if you’re pregnant. Here are some home remedies you might want to try:
Tea Tree Oil (चाय के पेड़ का तेल)
It can be particularly helpful in relieving the symptoms of scalp psoriasis when used in a prepared shampoo.
Aloe Vera (एलो वेरा)
Dr. Abernethy, who has psoriasis herself, says aloe vera gels or creams can help soften plaques when applied directly to the affected skin areas.
Healthy Oils (स्वस्थ तेल)
Psoriasis is an inflammatory disease, and omega-3 fatty acids found in fish, nuts, and seeds may help reduce inflammation. And eating a diet rich in healthy oils — like those found in fish, coconut, flaxseed, evening primrose, and avocado — may help soothe mild symptoms. However, the jury’s still out on whether taking fish oil supplements can help treat symptoms.
Turmeric, the spice that gives Indian curries their characteristic yellow color, may have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. The curcumin in turmeric is currently being studied in the treatment of a variety of chronic inflammatory diseases, including psoriasis.
