Common Triggers of Psoriasis That You Should Be Aware Of

Psoriasis is a skin disorder caused due to the rapid multiplication of skin cells. It is a non-contagious condition that manifests as scaly, red patches on different parts of the body. The precise cause of psoriasis has not been discovered yet, but it is mostly assumed to be a disorder of the immune system. Homeopathy treatment for skin diseases is the safest and the most effective way of treating the symptoms of psoriasis.
 
However, psoriasis has certain common triggers that you should be aware of:
 
 
Stress
 
Stress is one of the most common triggers of psoriasis and the two are closely connected to one another. Psoriasis is often a cause of stress for people, while stress in turn can result in psoriasis flare-ups. The only way of stopping this vicious cycle is by undergoing homeopathy treatment for psoriasis and practising relaxation techniques that can help reduce your stress levels.
 
 
Skin injury
 
Any kind of skin injury from cuts, scrapes, sunburns, or insect bites can cause psoriatic lesions around the affected area. A skin injury can lead to psoriasis flare ups only in people who are already suffering from the condition.
 
Illnesses
 
Any condition - be it an ear infection, tonsillitis, bronchitis, or a respiratory infection -  that impacts your immune system can make you experience a psoriasis flare-up. A streptococcus infection, commonly known as strep throat, is interlinked with guttate psoriasis, a type of psoriasis that presents at an early age. Strep throat can trigger the first onset of guttate psoriasis in children.
 
Weather
 
The prevailing weather conditions can be responsible for a psoriasis flare-up episode. When the climate is cold and dry, these flare-ups are quite common as it strips the moisture from the skin. On the other hand, warm and humid weather can provide some relief to people suffering from this disorder.
 
Specific food items
 
Although there is no conclusive proof that food can trigger symptoms of psoriasis, it is recommended to avoid specific food items to prevent the possibility of flare-ups. These food items include potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, dairy products, red meat, sugary and fatty foods, etc. Eliminating these from your diet or at least cutting back on them has made many people with psoriasis experience a reduction in symptoms.
 
Alcohol
 
Consuming alcohol can produce inflammatory proteins in the body which can up your risk for infection. This can contribute to a flare-up of psoriasis symptoms, and hence people with psoriasis should limit their alcohol consumption or stop it completely.
 
Smoking
 
Tobacco can increase the severity of psoriasis symptoms, and nicotine can interfere with any treatment you may be taking for the condition. Smoking can also increase the chances of developing palmoplantar pustular psoriasis, which is a rare type of psoriasis impacting the hands and feet. This is why, smoking as well as the inhalation of secondhand smoke should be strictly avoided by those who suffer from psoriasis.
 
Dr. Pravin Jain, one of the best homeopathy doctors in Vashi and other Indian cities, advises that the above triggering factors should be avoided by people with psoriasis as much as possible. If you are experiencing any symptoms, book an appointment with HomoeoCARE right away.
