Diet recommendations include consumption of cold water fish (preferably wild fish, not farmed) such as salmon, herring, and mackerel; extra virgin olive oil; legumes; vegetables; fruits; and whole grains; and avoid consumption of alcohol, red meat, and dairy products. The effect of consumption of caffeine (including coffee, black tea, mate, and dark chocolate) remains to be determined.

Psoriasis is characterized by an abnormally excessive and rapid growth of the epidermal layer of the skin. Abnormal production of skin cells (especially during wound repair) and an overabundance of skin cells result from the sequence of pathological events in psoriasis. Skin cells are replaced every 3–5 days in psoriasis rather than the usual 28–30 days. These changes are believed to stem from the premature maturation of keratinocytes induced by an inflammatory cascade in the dermis involving dendritic cells, macrophages, and T cells (three subtypes of white blood cells). These immune cells move from the dermis to the epidermis and secrete inflammatory chemical signals (cytokines) such as interleukin-36γ, tumor necrosis factor-α, interleukin-1β, interleukin-6, and interleukin-22. These secreted inflammatory signals are believed to stimulate keratinocytes to proliferate. One hypothesis is that psoriasis involves a defect in regulatory T cells, and in the regulatory cytokine interleukin-10.

you love them just as much with psoriasis as you did before Some people found methotrexate helped their skin. Hannah says it controlled her psoriasis well most of the time she was at university but then “plateaued”. Lisa says she’s also “glad” methotrexate can help with psoriatic arthritis which she thinks she could develop in the future. Zara didn’t find methotrexate made much of a difference to her psoriasis.

Guttate psoriasis is the second most common form of psoriasis. The word ‘guttate’ comes from the Latin for drop (guta) and this type of psoriasis occurs more commonly in children and young adults. It usually has a sudden onset, with the widespread appearance of small red teardrop shaped patches less than 1.5cm in size. The onset is often preceded by a streptococcal throat infection. In many cases, the condition disappears by itself after a few weeks or months.

Psoriasis resistant to topical treatment and phototherapy may be treated with systemic therapies including medications by mouth or injectable treatments. People undergoing systemic treatment must have regular blood and liver function tests to check for medication toxicities. Pregnancy must be avoided for most of these treatments. The majority of people experience a recurrence of psoriasis after systemic treatment is discontinued.
Breast Cancer Systemic treatments are medicines which affect the entire body, not only the site of psoriatic skin lesions. For example, medicines which are swallowed enter the blood stream and are distributed throughout the entire body. They are typically only used to treat psoriatic skin rash which affects > 5% of the body surface area and cannot be adequately controlled using topical or phototherapy. They include:
