Psoriasis can be hereditary but can also be caused by emotional or traumatic stress. The body’s immune system starts trying to fight the anti bodies but it then goes in to over drive producing excessive skin cells that build up. Psoriasis is defined by its fine to thick shiny, silvery scale which can effect small areas of the scalp or the whole scalp, often with an underlying redness especially if irritated or scratched. It is often flaky, feeling tight and uncomfortable, and can effect the ears and causes the nails to pit. The exact causes for psoriasis are unknown so there is no definite cure for the condition and different treatments work for different people. Once the scale is removed it quickly starts to replace its self but with regular treatments and/or the use of our home care pack No 3 it can be brought under control or even removed completely.
