Psoriasis is a chronic, relapsing, immune-mediated skin condition. The worldwide prevalence is 2%.
It has strikingly different clinical presentations varying from red scaly well-demarcated patches on the skin, thickening, and discoloration of nails, scaly plaques on the scalp to joint ache (Psoriatic arthritis).
Psoriasis has a direct correlation to our lifestyle and is affected by diet, exercise, smoking, and alcohol consumption. Estique Clinic is well renowned as Best skin clinic in Gurgaon for Psoriasis treatment.
Various factors known to aggravate psoriasis are:
- Alcohol consumption
- Drugs like few antihypertensive, antianxiety, antimalarial.
- Infections like sore throat, urinary tract infections.
There is a strong correlation between Psoriasis and Metabolic syndrome (diabetes type 2, dyslipidemia, hypertension, glucose intolerance, increased cardiovascular diseases, and heart stroke).
The prolonged course and relapsing nature of the disease often result in a high incidence of stress and anxiety. Improvement in psoriasis often leads to improvement in anxiety and depression.
Our treatment line is determined by the severity of the disease and comorbidities present.
Treatment of psoriasis can be limited to just topical therapy in case of mild disease. Systemic therapy in the form of oral medications and biologicals is indicated in moderate to severe disease. Phototherapy including Narrowband UVB, PUVA and also Excimer LASERS have shown excellent results.
Early detection and treatment not only results in better outcomes but also reduces the chance of other comorbidities.
I had a wonderful experience with Dr Sharma. I have been suffering from Psoriasis from 25 years. But I have never come across such an understanding and patient doctor. She explains about the disease, prognosis and treatment in a very comprehensive manner. I was truly content.
As I have consulted many Doctors, but Psoriasis problem got cured only after the consultation of Dr. Neha Sharma. I strongly recommend. And she is very beautiful & a person with all positive vibrations.
