October 29 is World Psoriasis Day!

Memphis Psoriasis TreatmentThere are more than 125 million people with psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis all over the world. World Psoriasis Day was established in 2004 in an effort to raise awareness of psoriasis and give people with the disease the attention and consideration they deserve.

Psoriasis is a common inflammatory disease most often characterized by raised, red, scaly patches. It is usually found on the elbows, knees and scalp but may appear on any part of the skin. This happens because skin cells in people with psoriasis grow at an abnormally fast rate which causes a buildup of psoriasis lesions; these lesions are NOT infectious or contagious but may frequently itch or burn.

Psoriasis most often develops between the ages of 15 and 35, affects men and women at equal rates and occurs in all racial groups. Psoriasis is also known to have a strong genetic link, often running in families.

Although psoriasis may be stressful and embarrassing, most outbreaks are relatively harmless. With appropriate treatment, symptoms generally subside within a few months. If you think you have psoriasis, make an appointment to see Dr. Baker to see what treatment options are available. In addition to the topical creams of the past, advances have led to new pills and injections that may eliminate many of your psoriasis symptoms.
