What is Psoriasis

The skin is the front line of defense against insult and injury and contains many epidermal and immune elements that comprise the skin-associated lymphoid tissue. Psoriasis is an immune-mediated disease that causes raised, red, scaly patches to appear on the skin.It typically affects the outside of the elbows, knees or scalp, though it can appear on any location. Some people report that psoriasis is itchy, burns and stings. Psoriasis is associated with other serious health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease and depression.

If you develop a rash that doesn’t go away with an over-the-counter medication, you should consider contacting your doctor.

Types of Psoriasis:

Immunology of Psoriasis

Psoriasis is characterised by three main pathophysiological processes namely; 1. Epidermal hyperproliferation and loss of differentiation, 2. Vascular proliferation, 3. Accumulation of inflammatory cells, particularly T lymphocytes and neutrophils within the dermal and epidermal compartments of the skin. Current evidence strongly indicates that psoriasis is primarily a T lymphocyte driven disease and that other changes observed are secondary to T-helper cell effector mechanisms.Important evidence includes; 1. Immunohistochemical studies showing early infiltration in T lymphocytes into evolving lesions, 2. Genetic studies showing linkage disequilibrium between psoriasis and a locus in the MHC on chromosome 6p, 3. Studies showing psoriasis responding to treatment with anti T-cell agents such as Cyclosporin A, and DAB 389-IL2.While guttate and occasionally chronic plaque psoriasis can be precipitated by streptococcal infection, there is evidence that psoriasis is an antigen driven response. Furthermore, in some studies the pattern of the TCR expressed in psoriatic plaques is consistent with bacterial superantigens being responsible. Of further importance is the observation that streptococcal super antigens can induce expression of the skin homing receptor, CLA, on lymphocytes, thereby providing a mechanism for this effect.

3. What are the Ayurvedic treatments available for psoriasis?
As far as the treatment of psoriasis in Ayurveda is concerned, it is brought under control by the pacification of all three or the vitiated doshas. It is done with the help of useful herbs. Different internal and external aspects are considered when the treatment begins, and everything is soothed with the help of Ayurveda. Moreover, eating right and immediate changes in lifestyle is very important during this time. The main Ayurveda treatment used to treat psoriasis is Panchakarma therapy. Panchakarma treatments involve plant-based remedies and dietary changes. These are meant to detox and purify the body.

4. Is psoriasis contagious?
No, Psoriasis being an auto-immune disease is not contagious.

5. What is the most common form of psoriasis?
Out of the five major types of psoriasis explained in the modern science (Plaque, Guttate, Erythrodermic, Pustular and Inverse psoriasis), Plaque psoriasis is the most commonly (90%)affected type of psoriasis. It typically presents as red patches with white scales on top. Areas of the body most commonly affected are the back of the forearms, shins, navel area, and scalp.

According to Ayurveda, this disease is known as Kitibha, which results from vitiation of the Vata and Kapha dosha. In Ayurveda, we call these symptoms as Syavam(blackish discolouration), Kinakharasparsa(dry to touch), and Parusa(roughness over patches), respectively. Various sites of the body such as scalp, face, trunk, limbs, palms, and soles involve in psoriasis. The chronic nature, recurring pattern, and visibility of psoriasis produce a great adverse impact on the psychological and social aspects of patients’ life.

6. What plays a major role in causing psoriasis?
Although genetic predisposition plays a major role in causing psoriasis, certain lifestyle practices and environmental changes trigger the development of psoriasis in an already healthy person.

As the immune system is compromised in persons with unhealthy lifestyle, the chances of manifestation of psoriasis in such individuals is said to higher.

Does psoriasis cause arthritis?
Yes, Psoriatic arthritis is a form of chronic inflammatory arthritis that has a highly variable clinical presentation and frequently occurs in association with skin and nail psoriasis. It typically involves painful inflammation of the joints and surrounding connective tissue, and can occur in any joint, but most commonly affects the joints of the fingers and toes. This can result in a sausage-shaped swelling of the fingers and toes known as dactylitis. Psoriatic arthritis can also affect the hips, knees, spine, and sacroiliac joint.  About 30% of individuals with psoriasis will develop psoriatic arthritis. Skin manifestations of psoriasis tend to occur before arthritic manifestations in about 75% of cases.

In Ayurveda, psoriatic arthritis can be explained in terms of the seven body tissues that are present in layers. With skin being the outermost layer and the first one to be affected with psoriasis, the chronicity of the disease becomes directly proportional to the involvement of deeper tissues. That means, as the chronicity increases, psoriasis spreads to deeper tissues and at the end reaches the Asthi dhaatu(bone tissue) and leads to symptoms such as pain in joints, swelling, deformity in the joints etc.

7. What’s the difference between psoriasis and eczema?
Both Psoriasis and eczema can show similarity in having a rash, presenting with itching over the skin and can involve similar body parts such as hands and legs.

The major difference between the two is that psoriasis is commonly seen on the backside of the elbows and front of the knees whereas eczema is commonly presented over the inner aspect of the elbows and knees i.e. the cubital fossa and the popliteal fossa respectively.

8. What are the possible side effects of long term psoriasis?
People suffering with psoriasis may have side effects both physically and mentally.

As explained earlier the major physical side effects of psoriasis include the involvement of the bones leading to psoriatic arthritis and the involvement of nails leading to color change of nails, roughness or brittleness of the nails etc. Other side effects include cardiovascular disease, obesity, high blood pressure, inflammatory disease etc.

Psychologically, the side effects include very low self esteem and depression.

9. Are there any side effects with the ayurvedic psoriasis treatment?
Side effects can be minimised when the treatment is taken under medical supervision.

Self medication may flare up the symptoms of psoriasis as Ayurveda medicine intake gives best results when followed up with proper diet.

10. How long does the psoriasis patient need to be on the medication?
The duration of the treatment completely depends on

  • The severity of psoriasis
  • The extent to which the body parts are involved
  • The chronicity of the disease
  • The age of the patient.
