SCALP PSORIASIS: IS IT CURABLE?
Psoriasis manifests when the replacement of skin cells happens at a much faster rate than ‘normal’, a phenomenon whose precise cause remains unknown. Research indicates a link to immune system dysfunction. The skin continually generates new cells in its deepest layer.
Scalp psoriasis, a subtype of plaque psoriasis, may affect specific areas or the entire scalp, leading to the formation of patches with thick scales. The degree of itchiness varies among individuals, with some experiencing significant discomfort while others remain unaffected.
What is the main cause of scalp psoriasis?
It arises when there’s a malfunction of the immune system. The immune system instructs skin cells to undergo rapid growth. Instead of the usual weeks, new skin cells emerge within days. The surplus skin cells are not naturally shed by the body, accumulating on the skin’s surface and giving rise to visible patches of psoriasis. These are the red flaky patches we see.
Can scalp psoriasis go away?
There isn’t a cure for scalp psoriasis. You may have flare-ups and times where the plaques go away (remission). Treatment can provide relief for your symptoms and can include UV light or medications that can be directly applied to the lesions, injected into the lesions or taken by mouth
How do you get rid of scalp psoriasis?
The primary prescribed remedy for scalp psoriasis in both children and adults is corticosteroids. Corticosteroids efficiently and rapidly alleviate redness, swelling, itching, and scaling. Its effectiveness surpasses that of other scalp-applied treatments. When used in accordance with instructions, this medication is considered safe.
The problem with this though is that as usual, it’s a topical treatment. While it may help with symptoms, it does not treat the underlying cause of why you have psoriasis.
Only by treating from within and resolving the inflammation and by fixing your immune system can you actually eliminate psoriasis for good.
How does Strength & Spices treat scalp psoriasis and psoriasis?
At Strength & Spices, we spent a long time researching to find an answer to psoriasis and a long-term solution. After a lot of work, it eventually paid off. We follow the same mentality as we did when we created our earlier products: we work on cause rather than the symptoms.
The cause of Psoriasis is mainly due to an immune system malfunction that makes the immune system attacks the skin cells mistakenly and consider that the skin cells are hostile cells. As a result, the skin cells to grow too quickly. New skin cells form in days rather than weeks. The body does not shed these excess skin cells.
