Psoriasis


What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a non-infectious, chronic inflammatory disease of the skin. It is characterized by the rapid production of epidermal cells at a rate six to nine times faster than normal, leading to thick, scaly patches on the skin.

 

What causes Psoriasis?

The exact cause of psoriasis is unknown (idiopathic). However, several factors can trigger the condition, including:

Autoimmune reactions or infections
Skin injury
Climate changes
Certain medications (such as antimalarial drugs and lithium)
Anxiety and stress


What are the clinical features of Psoriasis?

Initial signs include red spots on the body, well-defined erythematous plaques with silvery scales, dry, swollen, and inflamed skin. Symptoms also include pain, itching, and a burning sensation. Lesions are commonly found on the scalp, elbows, knees, lower back, and genitals.

 

How is Psoriasis treated in Ayurveda?

In Ayurveda, psoriasis is categorized under "Kushta" and is believed to result from an imbalance in the three doshas (Vata, Pitta, and Kapha). Treatments aim to balance these doshas through:

Shodhana (purification) and Shamana (palliative) therapies
Blood purification using internal medications, diet, and lifestyle changes
Detoxification therapies such as Snehapana, Virechana, or Vamana
Other treatments include Thakradhara, Lepana, Abhyanga, Njavarakizhi, Njavaralepana, and various body dharas.
