Psoriasis is not contagious, but if it is not treated at an early stage it can lead to serious conditions

The most common misconception about many skin diseases is that they are contagious and not unlike psoriasis, a chronic autoimmune condition that causes the rapid buildup of skin cells. This buildup of cells results in flaking on the surface of the skin. Inflammation and redness are common symptoms of psoriasis.

Mostly, red and white patches appear on the skin on various parts of the body such as the knees, elbows, trunk and scalp in patients with psoriasis. Despite advances in medical science and the emergence of effective treatment, there are many misconceptions about this skin condition.

Recently, an expert in Ayurveda, Dr. Nitika Kohli, shared a series of photos on Instagram debunking the myths about psoriasis.

Breaking some common misconceptions about the skin disease, Dr. Kohli said, “How many times have you had to explain to someone that psoriasis isn’t contagious? We’re here to settle that—plus some other misconceptions.”

I started by debunking the most popular myth about psoriasis that it is contagious. The Ayurvedic practitioner said, “Definitely not!” Another common myth about this skin disorder is that only adults get psoriasis. However, Dr. Kohli said that people of any age can be affected by this skin infection.

It is believed that there is no cure for psoriasis. However, the expert explained that there are safe and effective Ayurvedic treatments for this skin condition.

Often, people do not take this skin disorder seriously considering psoriasis to be just itchy skin. Dr. Kohli suggested that if it is not treated at an early stage it can lead to serious consequences.

It’s also been linked to some worrisome health conditions, including diabetes, liver disease, and heart disease. It can affect your joints and cause arthritis, known as psoriatic arthritis.”

Dr. Kohli also mentioned that psoriasis can be genetic as well. There are different types of skin diseases such as pustular psoriasis, guttate psoriasis, inverse psoriasis, and erythrodermic psoriasis. Symptoms and treatment for each type can be different.
