Ayurveda and Psoriasis

What is Psoriasis:

Psoriasis is fundamentally an immune system problem. Psoriasis is a noncontagious, chronic skin disease that produces plaques of thickened, scaly skin. The dry flakes of silvery-white skin scales result from the excessively rapid proliferation of skin cells. The proliferation of skin cells is triggered by inflammatory chemicals produced by specialized white blood cells called T-cells. Psoriasis commonly affects the skin of the elbows, knees, and scalp.

Psoriasis is considered an incurable, long-term (chronic) inflammatory skin condition. It has a variable course, periodically improving and worsening. It is not unusual for psoriasis to spontaneously clear for years and stay in remission. Many people note a worsening of their symptoms in the colder winter months.

Psoriasis occurs when the life cycle of skin cells speeds up, resulting in a rapid buildup of rough, dead skin cells. These skin cells accumulate, forming thick silvery scales and dry, red patches that are sometimes itchy or painful. In some cases, pus-filled blisters appear.

Psoriasis patches can range from a few spots of dandruff-like scaling to major eruptions that cover large areas.

Though psoriasis signs and symptoms vary from person to person, psoriasis types are typically identified by their hallmark appearances. Here’s a look at psoriasis photos, showing classic signs and symptoms.

What are the Different Types of Psoriasis?

Guttate psoriasis

Guttate psoriasis is common in childhood. This type of psoriasis causes small pink spots. The most common sites for guttate psoriasis include the torso, arms, and legs. These spots are rarely thick or raised like plaque psoriasis.

Plaque psoriasis

Plaque psoriasis is the most common type of psoriasis. The AAD estimates that about 80 percent of people with the condition have plaque psoriasis. It causes red, inflamed patches that cover areas of the skin. These patches are often covered with whitish-silver scales or plaques. These plaques are commonly found on the elbows, knees, and scalp.

Inverse psoriasis

Inverse psoriasis causes bright areas of red, shiny, inflamed skin. Patches of inverse psoriasis develop under armpits or breasts, in the groin, or around skinfolds in the genitals.

Erythrodermic psoriasis

Erythrodermic psoriasis is a severe and very rare type of psoriasis. This form often covers large sections of the body at once. The skin almost appears sunburned. Scales that develop often slough off in large sections or sheets. It’s not uncommon for a person with this type of psoriasis to run a fever or become very ill. This type can be life-threatening, so individuals should see a doctor immediately.

Pustular psoriasis

Pustular psoriasis is more common in adults. It causes white, pus-filled blisters and broad areas of red, inflamed skin. Pustular psoriasis is typically localized to smaller areas of the body, such as the hands or feet, but it can be widespread.

What are the symptoms?

  1. Plaque psoriasis signs and symptoms appear as red or pink small scaly bumps that merge into plaques of raised skin. Plaque psoriasis classically affects skin over the elbows, knees, and scalp and is often itchy. Although any area may be involved, plaque psoriasis tends to be more common at sites of friction, scratching, or abrasion.
  2. Guttate psoriasis symptoms and signs include bumps or small plaques (½ inch or less) of red itchy, scaling skin that may appear explosively, affecting large parts of the skin surface simultaneously, after a sore throat.
  3. Fingernails and toenails often exhibit small pits (pinpoint depressions) and/or larger yellowish-brown separations of the nail from the nail bed at the fingertip called distal onycholysis. Nail psoriasis may be confused with an incorrectly diagnosed as a fungal nail infection.
  4. Erythrodermic psoriasis appears as extensive areas of red skin often involving the entire skin surface. Patients may often feel chilled.
  5. Scalp psoriasis may look like severe dandruff with dry flakes and red areas of skin. It can be difficult to differentiate between scalp psoriasis and seborrheic dermatitis when only the scalp is involved. However, the treatment is often very similar for both conditions.
Home Remedies for Psoriasis

Causes

Psoriasis can be caused by a variety of reasons. Heredity can be crucial. If one parent is affected, then there is 15% of chances for the child to suffer from psoriasis. If both the parents are affected then the possibility of a child getting the psoriasis is 60%. Consumption of opposite foods (such as fish and milk together), trauma on the skin like cuts, bruises or burns, some medicines or skin irritants, excessive smoking, alcohol consumption, and mental stress or psychological trauma can also be responsible for causing it.

Ayurvedic Management

According to Ayurveda, Psoriasis appears due to imbalance of two doshas – Vata and Kapha . Vata and Kapha doshas manifest in the skin and cause accumulation of toxins. These toxins accumulate in deep tissues like rasa (nutrient plasma), rakta (blood), mansa (muscles), and lasika (lymphatic). These toxins cause contamination of deeper tissues, leading to Psoriasis.

Purification of blood and tissues is the primary aim of Ayurvedic treatment in cases of Psoriasis. Toxins are cleansed from the body and the digestion restored to prevent further accumulation. Nourishing herbs are then administered to strengthen and tone the tissues to promote complete healing of the skin.

These are meant to detox and purify the body. A vegetarian diet is often recommended.

The Panchakarma treatments include:
  • consuming medicated ghee, a form of clarified butter
  • purging and vomiting
  • dripping medicated buttermilk on a person’s head
  • covering the entire body in a paste of medicines and mud
  • performing medicated enemas

The length and success of your treatment depends on the severity of your psoriasis and your commitment to the treatment.

The following Ayurvedic herbal remedies may also be used to treat psoriasis:
  • black nightshade juice to reduce inflammation
  • garlic and onions to purify the blood
  • jasmine flower paste to relieve itching and reduce inflammation
  • guggal to reduce inflammation
  • neem to boost the immune system and purify the blood
  • turmeric to reduce inflammation, redness, and swelling
  • boswellia (frankincense) to reduce inflammation and support the immune system
