Psoriasis is not contagious like a cold or chickenpox is. So the good news is that you don't have to worry about it affecting those around you. Although it is not contagious, scientists are still trying to determine what exactly causes psoriasis to manifest. As it stands, scientists attribute the development of psoriasis to two factors - the immune system and genes. When someone has psoriasis, there is something wrong in their immune system that is causing extra skin cells to pile up on the surface of the skin. And we know that psoriasis can also run in families and people can have genes that increase the risk of having psoriasis.

WHAT CAUSES PSORIASIS?

There are many things that can cause psoriasis to trigger. Some of the most common triggers are:


  • Stress
  • Tobacco and Alcohol
  • Cold and Dry Weather
  • Certain Medications
  • Infections
  • Skin Injuries


These triggers can vary from person to person, with some triggers only being the case for some people. It's important to find out what your specific triggers are by going for a consultation.

WHAT TRIGGERS

PSORIASIS?

If you have psoriasis, it's important to consult with a dermatologist to determine what sort of psoriasis you have and what treatments are best in managing it.


Your treatment can consist of medication applied to the skin, light-based treatments and/or medication that works across and throughout your body such as biologics.
