Dealing With Psoriasis At An Early Age

Psoriasis, skin diseasePsoriasis is an immune mediated disease, it happens when the immune system mistakes a normal skin cell for a pathogen, and sends out faulty signals which lead to over production of new skin cells. This non contagious disease apparently has no known cure but various treatments are known to control its symptoms.

Dealing with Psoriasis at an early age is tough as people during their early life are more conscious towards their peers than later. Unfortunately most dermatologists subscribe costly lotions and creams which are of no avail, and cause more damage through their toxins than provide actual help. Most doctors hardly empathize with the patients when they come to them with their permanent itch related to psoriasis. Parents need to understand the situation and instead of pointing fingers to probable causes they should start coming to terms with the situation rather than alleviating the peer pressure to enormous proportions.
