Psoriasis

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a skin disorder that causes skin cells to multiply up to 10 times faster than normal. This makes the skin build up into bumpy red patches covered with white scales. They can grow anywhere, but most appear on the scalp, elbows, knees, and lower back.

Psoriasis Treatment Options

Treatment will depend on the type and severity of psoriasis.

Psoriasis is a skin disease that causes red, itchy scaly patches, most commonly on the knees, elbows, trunk and scalp.

Psoriasis is a common, long-term (chronic) disease with no cure. It tends to go through cycles, flaring for a few weeks or months, then subsiding for a while or going into remission. Treatments are available to help you manage symptoms. And you can incorporate lifestyle habits and coping strategies to help you live better with psoriasis.

Psoriasis signs and symptoms can vary from person to person. Common signs and symptoms include:

  • Red patches of skin covered with thick, silvery scales
  • Small scaling spots (commonly seen in children)
  • Dry, cracked skin that may bleed or itch
  • Itching, burning or soreness
  • Thickened, pitted or ridged nails
  • Swollen and stiff joints

Psoriasis patches can range from a few spots of dandruff-like scaling to major eruptions that cover large areas. The most commonly affected areas are the lower back, elbows, knees, legs, soles of the feet, scalp, face and palms.

Most types of psoriasis go through cycles, flaring for a few weeks or months, then subsiding for a time or even going into remission.

Psoriasis is thought to be an immune system problem that causes the skin to regenerate at faster than normal rates. In the most common type of psoriasis, known as plaque psoriasis, this rapid turnover of cells results in scales and red patches.

Just what causes the immune system to malfunction isn’t entirely clear. Researchers believe both genetics and environmental factors play a role. The condition is not contagious.

I will recommend them due to their qualified staff and hygiene. After wasting too much money on shampoos and hair oils, I found fehmida’s clinic in Karachi for hair treatment; At first, I was confused about consulting her, but during my treatment, I realized that my hair fall was reducing day by day.

It was a pleasure meeting Dr. Fehmida. She was really great at helping us out because my husband was facing some severe skin issues, and my back was full of sunburn and acne scars. The procedures she used were so beneficial that I am already seeing results!

I have had the best experience at Dr Arif clinic. The cryotherapy was worth every penny and the IV’s were amazing too. I got my hair exosomes and laser done and super excited about the results for those also. Prices are great, clinic is clean and staff is amazing and well knowledgeable. Thanks to the entire team.

Loved the work. Dr. Fehmida was able to get my hair back & stop my receding hairline issue with Rigenera. The procedure itself was painless and nothing lengthy. My confidence has boosted a 100% after my hair came back!
