Psoriasis can appear at any age. Making an early diagnosis of this chronic disease, which has in recent years come to be regarded as systemic (including other organs and systems besides the skin), helps prescribe suitable treatment and limit its spread. Sunbathing and swimming in the sea, essential moisturisers (emollients), special cleansers and keratolytics (for exfoliation) help improve the skin’s protective barrier and relieve symptoms. Phototherapy is a basic, non-aggressive method that uses artificial sources of ultraviolet rays with a precisely specified wavelength. Phototherapy has been shown to significantly reduce skin inflammation. Laser therapy is another method that also provides good results. The precision of laser beams with a precisely specified wavelength helps treat certain delicate areas of the skin. The advantage is that the laser beam only targets psoriatic plaques without affecting healthy skin.

A diagnosis can be made and a treatment plan prepared only after а consultation with a dermatology specialist.

More information

Psoriasis is not contagious, meaning it is not transmitted by handshakes or other bodily contact. It is characterised by red patches on the skin, where sliver plaques (flakes) are formed. The disease has a chronic recurrent course – exacerbation periods are followed by periods of remission. Studies show that the quiet periods have different durations – anything from days to years. With a carefully planned treatment, the periods of remission can last for a very long time. Psoriasis’ clinical picture varies from single plaques on the elbows or in the hairy part of the head to coverage of more than 85% of the skin surface. The following forms have been identified:

Guttate psoriasis – small erythematous, teardrop-shaped lesions scattered across the upper and lower extremities of the body.
Plaque psoriasis – the most common form of the disease. The plaques are located mainly on the knees, elbows and scalp. Skin changes include red, raised inflammatory lesions covered in scales.
Inverse psoriasis – red, moist, poorly infiltrated, scale-free plaques located in the foldable areas of the body and skin folds.
Inveterate psoriasis – a condition of untreated psoriasis with thick, hypertrophic plaques covered by several layers of grey to whitish and difficult to separate scales.
Nail psoriasis – characterised by nail stains, detachment of the free end of the nail; it can be the only manifestation of the disease.
