Psoriasis is a disorder of the skin. Although it is a non-communicable disease however it is an irritable condition of the skin under which the skin cells multiply or reproduce at rapid rate due to which the skin becomes red in color. There is thickness of the skin as well which results in dry patches of the skin.

Even there is appearance of dry flakes and scales on the skin. These flakes and scales are produced as a result of the fast reproduction of the skin cells. Although psoriasis may affect any part of the body however it is commonly found on the skin of knees, scalp and elbows.

Why does Psoriasis happen?

Psoriasis may occur due to multiple causative factors such as distress in the skin in the form of bruises, cuts or burns. Some people suffer from psoriasis due to family history of the disease or you can say they get it in their inheritance.

Ayurvedic Viewpoint

As per ayurvedic theory, psoriasis is caused by imbalance of the Pitta and Vata Doshas. It leads to production of toxins which get accumulated in the muscles, blood, lymphatic tissues and nutrient plasma. As a result, the deeper tissues of skin become infective and hence lead to psoriasis. Ayurveda treats psoriasis by purifying the blood and the concerned tissues. Also digestive system is normalized so as to remove waste materials from the body.
