Journal of Liver: Disease & Transplantation Hybrid Open Access Journal Psoriasis is a genetically programmed inflammatory disease that primarily affects the skin in about 3% of individuals in the United States. Psoriasis is characterized by skin cells that multiply up to 10 times faster than normal. When these cells reach the surface and die, raised, red plaques covered with white scales form. Psoriasis begins as a small scaling papule. When multiple papules coalesce, they form scaling plaques. These plaques tend to occur in the scalp, elbows, and knees. See the DermNet NZ bookstore. The exact cause of scalp psoriasis is unknown, but research suggests there is a genetic link. Evolution What type of psoriasis do I have? Managing Type 1 Diabetes Biologics are manufactured proteins that interrupt the immune process involved in psoriasis. Unlike generalised immunosuppressive drug therapies such as methotrexate, biologics target specific aspects of the immune system contributing to psoriasis.[81] These medications are generally well-tolerated and limited long-term outcome data have demonstrated biologics to be safe for long-term use in moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.[81][83] However, due to their immunosuppressive actions, biologics have been associated with a small increase in the risk for infection.[81] Roberson EDO, Bowcock AM.

Salicylic acid (Dermarest, Psoriasin) is available in many different OTC formulations to treat both skin and scalp psoriasis. Bath salts or bathing in high-salt-concentration waters like the Dead Sea in the Middle East along with careful exposure to sunlight can be beneficial to psoriasis patients. • Extracted from Sunbathing Naked by Guy Kennaway, published by Canongate on June 26 at £10.99 (c) 2008 Guy Kennaway.

This is in line with the increased risk of adverse events to conventional drugs, such as hepatotoxicity to methotrexate, which is more prevalent in patients with hepatic steatosis, and reduced efficacy and/or increased costs of biotechnology therapy, whose dose should be adjusted to patient's weight.33,58 Apart from infliximab, dosage regimens of biotechnological agents approved in Europe do not consider the patient's weight, except for ustekinumab, whose dose is doubled in patients weighing more than 100 kg, which may partially explain variation in efficacy of this agent found among patients with different BMI.

BMJ Journals More Visits Tomorrow Linkedin There are several different forms of psoriasis, including plaque psoriasis or psoriasis vulgaris (common type), guttate psoriasis (small, drop-like spots), inverse psoriasis (in the folds like of the underarms, navel, groin, and buttocks), and pustular psoriasis (small pus-filled yellowish blisters). When the palms and the soles are involved, this is known as palmoplantar psoriasis. In erythrodermic psoriasis, the entire skin surface is involved with the disease. Patients with this form of psoriasis often feel cold and may develop congestive heart failure if they have a preexisting heart problem. Nail psoriasis produces yellow pitted nails that can be confused with nail fungus. Scalp psoriasis can be severe enough to produce localized hair loss, plenty of dandruff, and severe itching.
