National Psoriasis Month~ Germain Dermatology

Did you know that August is National Psoriasis Awareness Month?

Psoriasis affects approximately 7.5 MILLION Americans and the trigger can be as simple as stress! 

Psoriasis is a chronic, noncontagious, genetic autoimmune disease that appears on the skin in red, scaly patches that itch, crack and bleed. It is the most common autoimmune disease in the country.

What many don’t know is that up to 30% of people with psoriasis develop psoriatic arthritis, an inflammatory type of arthritis that causes pain and swelling of the joints and tendons. Psoriasis is more than meets the eye.

What causes psoriasis?

Genetics and the immune system play a major role in the disease. In people with psoriasis, the immune system sends out faulty signals that speed up the growth of skin cells.

To develop psoriasis, a person must have a combination of the genes that cause psoriasis and be exposed to external “triggers.” Triggers include stress; injury to the skin, such as a tattoo or a scrape; smoking; and certain infections.

There is no cure for psoriasis, but many treatment options are available. Treatment is individualized for each person and depends on the severity of the disease, the type of psoriasis and how the person reacts to certain treatments.

Learn more about psoriasis, its associated health risks, treatment options and ways to effectively manage the disease at http://www.psoriasis.org/. Think you are suffering from Psoriasis? Call us, Germain Dermatology, for the best dermatological treatment in Charleston~ 843-881-4440.
