Treatments Available


People who have Psoriasis have an increased production of skin cells. With most people the body naturally replaces skin cells every 3 to 4 weeks but those who suffer with Psoriasis replace these cells every three to seven days. This causes cells to build up creating dry patches of sore itchy skin. There are many theories behind what causes the condition to happen, from genetics, to reaction to certain medicines, as well as throat infections or injury to the skin.
Unfortunately Psoriasis can’t be prevented. However if you are suffering with Psoriasis there are measures you can take to control it and ensure the condition doesn’t worsen. If you have Psoriasis it is important to follow the advice given to you by your GP, as well as ensuring the area is kept moisturised.
