According the Psoriasis Association, around 2-3% of people in the UK will suffer from it as some point in their lives. It can affect almost any part of the body and is caused by an abundance of skin cells that regenerate skin too quickly.

What is it?

Psoriasis is a skin condition that affects around 2-3% of all people in the UK. It can occur on the skin and around joints. Although it isn’t significantly threatening to your health, it can lower your self-confidence or self esteem if you feel unattractive if you have it. It usually affects your arms, feet, and scalp, however it can also affect the genitals and other body parts.

Psoriasis looks red and can cause your skin to become flaky and itchy. The key is to find a natural solution as soon as possible and to avoid aggravating the situation further.

What causes psoriasis?

Contrary to popular belief, this is caused not by a skin allergy, but due to abundance skin cells regeneration too quickly. On average your skin should generate new cells ever 21-28 days, however when psoriasis strikes, your skin is reproducing cells every few days. This then causes cells to build up and cause plaques on the skin surface, which appears red. It can be very uncomfortable and may also cause to experience a burning or itching sensation.

These overacting cells are known as ‘T-Cells’. They basically work as if they were healing a wound (hence their overacting). This skin imperfection is also known as an immune mediation condition or as an autoimmune disease. It’s still unclear as to why these T-Cells begin working as they do in the first place.
