Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin condition. There are five types, each with unique signs and symptoms:
Erythrodermic: Intense red, peeling rash covering a large area of the body
Guttate: Small, reddish pink sores or spots on the trunk, arms, legs, and/or scalp
Inverse: Smooth patches of redness and irritation on the skin of the armpits and groin
Plaque: Thick, red patches of skin covered with silvery white skin; this is the most common form of psoriasis
Pustular: Blisters surrounded by irritated skin; may also cause fever, chills and fatigue. .
Plaque psoriasis is the most common type of psoriasis. About 80% of people who develop psoriasis have plaque psoriasis, which appears as patches of raised, reddish skin covered by silvery-white scale. These patches, or plaques, frequently form on the elbows, knees, lower back, and scalp. However, the plaques can occur anywhere on the body.
Regardless of type, psoriasis usually causes discomfort. The skin often itches, and it may crack and bleed. In severe cases, the itching and discomfort may keep a person awake at night, and the pain can make everyday tasks difficult.
Most OTC lotions that we use on a daily basis are going to reach that first layer of skin while the deeper layers impatiently wait for moisture to come.Unfortunately, over-moisturizing the area can cause further inflammation because it isn't getting deep enough, and trying to shed those dead skin cells with exfoliating products can certainly lead to an extreme flare up. That's why it's important to make sure ALL of the ingredients in a topical balm are going to work together efficiently and get beyond the external layers.
