Psoriasis Is Not Contagious, Awareness Is

This August, V&M Naturals is one in taking part of Psoriasis Awareness Month, as we have quite a number of clients who suffer from the illness and we want more people to have enough information about it. And, so, in this post we will try to impart as much knowledge about the topic as we can.

According to Mayo Clinic, Psoriasis is a usual skin condition that quickens the skin cells’ life cycle, which causes the rapid build-up of cells on the skin’s surface. These extra skin cells form scales and red patches that are itchy and can even be painful.

Signs and symptoms of Psoriasis are not the same for everyone with common ones including red patches, scaling, dry skin, itching, soreness, thickened nails, and stiff joints. Psoriasis patches can appear in different ways from dandruff-like scaling to major eruptions in large areas.

There are 7 types of Psoriasis:

Plaque psoriasis
Nail psoriasis
Guttate psoriasis
Inverse psoriasis
Pustular psoriasis
Erythrodermic psoriasis
Psoriatic arthritis

Most types of psoriasis go through cycles. They flare for a few weeks or months and then subside for a time or even go into remission.

Although the cause of Psoriasis has not been fully understood, there are a number of triggers that can worsen it. Some of these include infections, skin injury, stress, smoking, heavy alcohol consumption, Vitamin D deficiency, and certain medications.

Meanwhile there are also a number of factors that may increase the risk of developing Psoriasis:

Family history
Viral and bacterial infections

Until today, there is still no cure developed for Psoriasis. However, symptoms can be managed through a number of lifestyle measures like moisturizing, quitting smoking, and managing stress. Another thing that has helped so many of our clients that deal with this dilemma is our Emu Oil, which is the only oil that resembles the human skin’s natural oil. Due to this property, it can be utilized in decreasing the appearance of scaling, itching, redness, soreness and red patches. 

We are in no way saying that our product can cure Psoriasis. However, we also believe in the testaments that our clients have given regarding its amazing benefits towards their skins. So, if not a single medication you are trying right now is helping in improving your condition, you can always consider Emu Oil.
