The impact of psoriasis on confidence and self-esteem What Is Psoriasis Figure 4. Preferences of subgroups based on psoriasis severity measurements. Differences in relative importance scores (RISs) were tested for significance by post hoc tests. A, Grouping according to Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI) showed no significant differences in the descriptive analyses, but regression models demonstrated interdependence between PASI and RISs for probability of benefit and treatment frequency (Table 4). B, Patients with a Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI) between 11 and 20 were significantly more concerned about the probability of benefit than were those with a score between 0 and 5 (mean [SEM] RIS, 31.22 [4.63] vs 20.71 [2.40]). However, this result did not persist in multivariate regression analysis (Table 4). AE indicates adverse effect. * P = .02.

Diversity & Equality in Health and Care Open Access Journal Two major immune system genes under investigation are interleukin-12 subunit beta (IL12B) on chromosome 5q, which expresses interleukin-12B; and IL23R on chromosome 1p, which expresses the interleukin-23 receptor, and is involved in T cell differentiation. Interleukin-23 receptor and IL12B have both been strongly linked with psoriasis. T cells are involved in the inflammatory process that leads to psoriasis. These genes are on the pathway that upregulate tumor necrosis factor-α and nuclear factor κB, two genes involved in inflammation. Recently, the first gene directly linked to psoriasis has been identified. A rare mutation in the gene encoding for the CARD14 protein plus an environmental trigger was enough to cause plaque psoriasis (the most common form of psoriasis).
Avoiding things which trigger psoriasis skin symptoms is an important preventive measure. Common triggers include:

If topicals don’t work, you have options. Excimer laser therapy can be really effective for scalp psoriasis, says Dr. Farber. The laser directs UVB light to the psoriasis plaques where it helps reduce inflammation and scaling. “Sometimes intralesional injections of low dose steroids directly on to the resistant spot on scalp works nicely,” Dr. Farber says.
