Psoriasis Treatment

The best psoriasis treatment plan is part of our autoimmune disease therapy and healing protocol.  Psoriasis often causes a scaly, itchy rash.  Plaque psoriasis references the build-up on the skin of skin cells during a flare-up period of the disease.  Traditional psoriasis treatment often involves topical lotions and psoriasis treatment creams, light therapy and injections. At Sunridge we look to heal the source of the autoimmune disorder and how to cure psoriasis permanently and bring an end to the disease.

Inverse Psoriasis mainly affects the folds of skin around the groin, buttocks and breasts. It causes smooth patches that become worse from friction or sweat. Fungal infections may also trigger Inverse Psoriasis.

Nail Psoriasis can affect both fingernails and toenails. The nails often become pitted, grow in an abnormal way,  discolor and even loosen from their beds (onycholysis). Severe psoriasis may cause them crumble entirely. Treatment may include topical corticosteroids but not address the core cause of the disease.

Guttate psoriasis is an irritating condition that causes small, drop-shaped scaling spots on the core and arms. Often triggered by a bacterial infection such as strep throat, it is and marked by inflammation of the skin in susceptible people who are predisposed for Mixed Connective Tissue Disease (MCTD).

Psoriasis treatment varies for this condition but is still directed toward the outward manifestation of the disease.

Erythrodermic and Pustular Psoriasis are the least common types of the disease.  Both require immediate medical intervention and outbreaks are often followed by hospitalization.

As in all autoimmune disorders, the immune system is fighting against the body’s tissues by creating antibodies. In psoriasis the antibodies attack the connective tissues of the skin.

Psoriasis Symptoms

Psoriasis can be triggered by a number of different factors, including infections like strep throat or skin irritation from an injury. The condition may also develop after exposure to harsh weather conditions such as extreme cold and dryness because these types of external factors cause your body’s immune system to overact against its own cells which then causes psoriasis. Quick withdrawal from oral corticosteroids can also trigger symptoms so care in titrating steroids is critical.
