Psoriasis at The MW Clinic London
  • Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory autoimmune disorder that affects the skin. It causes the rapid production of skin cells, resulting in the buildup of thick, scaly patches on the skin's surface.
  • These patches are often itchy, red, and inflamed and can occur anywhere on the body, although they are most commonly found on the scalp, elbows, knees, and lower back.
  • Psoriasis is not contagious and can vary in severity from person to person. Some people may experience only mild symptoms, while others may have severe and debilitating symptoms that can affect their quality of life.
  • The exact cause of psoriasis is not fully understood, but it is believed to be related to a combination of genetic and immune factors. an overactive immune system that mistakenly attacks healthy skin cells.
  • There is no cure for psoriasis, but treatments can help manage symptoms and improve quality of life. These may include topical medications, oral medications, light therapy, oral or injectable immunosuppressants
