Spot is the main symptom of psoriasis. Spot is the most important symptom that is diagnosed with this disease. And, finally, the place is something that can become a cause of concern for the rest of his life, even after the psoriasis go into remission.
The stain psoriasis is seen in 80% of all those who suffer from this disease to the people. The location of the spots may depend on the type of psoriasis, and the causes of the disease.
Although this disease is known to mankind for hundreds of years, its etiology is not infallible. Naturally, the fight with him is complicated by the fact that there is no practical opportunity to remove the cause of the disease.
However, even in the early years of the nineteenth century, the British physician Robert Willan together with a group of his students was able to describe the symptoms of this disease. In the future, with the participation of Austrian and German dermatologists, he managed to establish the genetic roots of the disease.
The research of these doctors showed a direct relationship of psoriasis, with impairment of the functions of the internal organs. As a result, these abnormal disorders often occur at the cellular level.
Of the same disease, as was demonstrated in the course of these studies, has a genetic predisposition.
The aetiology of psoriasis have been much studied in the twentieth century, when it was discovered strong evidence of the presence in the causes of the disease immunological factors and the influence of alterations in metabolic processes.
Currently, this disease affects more than 4% of the world population. And it is a concern of the representatives of official medicine. This trend, and the dynamics of the manifestations of the disease caused by the medical research institutions to continue research into the causes and effective methods of influence. Create a special international Association that brings together dermatologists dealing with issues of this disease, in 35 States.
Thus, the number of relevant and scientifically based (though not always proven) causes of the disease are called:
With a certain degree of conviction by some doctors as a another reason that makes reference to problems with the nervous system and the emotional state. Frequent stress, depressive symptoms, irritability, nervous, theoretically, can serve as a source of the psoriasis. But, in any case, even if this theory does not receive the confirmation in the future, the stress and psychological aspects, it is impossible to remove it is absolutely true that these factors can cause if already existing illness, and is able to influence its progression.
As precipitating factors are often referred to as infectious agents - viruses and bacteria, as well as the climatic conditions. Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet radiation (for example, ordinary sunlight) also point to the episodes of flares of skin lesions.
Relatively immune theory of the origin of the disease in disagreement in the environment of doctors, that is not the solution. It is noticed that the symptoms begin to manifest in the increase of the activity of the cells of the immune system. In the meantime, following this pattern, the psoriasis has not manifested to those who suffer from the insufficiency of the activity of the immune system. In particular, this pattern is observed in patients with AIDS and HIV infected people. However, they are also prone to the diseases that they cause this medical paradox.
As mentioned in the beginning, the spots are the main symptom of the basis of which the doctor can set the diagnosis. During the clinical examination, the dermatologist calls attention to the nature of the lesion of the skin, rashes on the skin or in their absence, the location of the lesion and other signs.
But before you familiarize yourself with the symptoms manifested in the form of points, it is important to learn about other signs of the disease. They are often not so noticeable, and sometimes, that can only be detected through lab examinations.
Sami spots of psoriasis is difficult to confuse with similar characteristics in other dermatological disorders. However, the probability of error has not been ruled out. Especially in the initial phase, when spots are beginning to emerge, and still form the eruption.
The progress of the psoriasis does not begin with the formation of lesions. This process is preceded by the depression of the patient, lack of energy, low body resistance. As a result, the first plan can go out the signs of the secondary disease that appears in the context of the reduction of the activity of the immune of the body.
Often this is manifested with fever prolonged, the changes in the physiological parameters of pressure, the pulse, the rhythm of the breath. In some cases there is cough, difficulty breathing.
However, it can show signs of psychological disorders - severe anxiety or depression and depression. Worse, these signs are the formation of lesions. Even his appearance causes stress, even in healthy people.
Already in the first days of development of the disease can manifest their characteristic symptoms - spots:
- Papules, at first discreet, slowly grow to the size of 15-20 mm, rising above the surface of the skin. And within them begins the conversion of exudative fluid. She is in a few days it becomes cloudy and begins to break through the top layer of dead cells.
This pattern of the causes of the depression of the patient's state, which, as already mentioned, is the factor precipitating the disease. Thus is formed a vicious circle in which the symptoms give rise to factor etiological, and the disease continues to progress.
With timely treatment points after the psoriasis gradually reduced. Simultaneously with the lesions decreasing in size and papules - the diameter is reduced, which are compared in height with the level of the skin and then gradually disappear.
Things are more complicated for the spots after the psoriasis. Them, as a disturbing reminder of an incurable disease, to remain on the body of the patient. And do not disappear even after the remission.
Meanwhile, the nature of the spots is changed. Its limits are clear. But the pigmentation of pink or Burgundy color is very reduced. Appears a pale shade, making the spots after the psoriasis is less noticeable.
By themselves, these formations do not cause anxiety to the patient. During the remission there is pain, itching and other uncomfortable feelings. But the appearance of these points can have a negative effect on the psychological and emotional state. Especially if the lesions have been formed in the parts visible of the body.
To restore the natural color of the skin virtually impossible. The cause of the physiological processes that occur in the body of a patient with psoriasis. The immune system produces special hormones, antibodies and blood cells, are actively opposing the development of pigment cells. As a result, there is a loss of cells and the body are all pockets deprived of their pigmentation natural.
Dermatologists recommend not abusing poorly known methods of removal of spots after psoriasis, full of folk medicine. Irrational and uncontrolled use of these tools can lead to a relapse and the progression of the disease.
Not worth it as a means to hide the use of natural or artificial tan - the ultraviolet rays emanating from the sun or UV lamps in uncontrolled quantities, it can cause damage and lead to repeated episodes of the disease.
At the same time, the irradiation with UV can be an effective means of treatment, but subject to moderate dosage.
Frequent sun exposure it is necessary to use a special cream with UV degree of protection not less than 20 SPF. A certain degree of efficiency that proves that castor oil should be used twice a day.
Some results are obtained when using salicylic ointment, salicylic paste with zinc. But it should be used only as directed by your doctor. The effect of spots removal is marked for the external use of tar and products on their base, naphthalene ointment.
If it is not contrary to the scheme of the treatment and causes of relapse, in order to eliminate the effects of psoriasis patches can be used the juice of cucumber with hydrogen peroxide, Apple cider vinegar (helps when troubleshooting blue points after the psoriasis). Also on the recommendation of a dermatologist, you can apply a tincture of marshmallow, root of rhubarb. With the defeat of large parts of the body, allows a surgical procedure to remove the stains.
All of the tools and procedures have to be used under the supervision of a doctor on site after the treatment of psoriasis and its elimination is not the cause of relapses and complications.
