Psoriasis

What is psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a skin condition in Singapore where you get itchy and scaly patches or rashes at your knees, elbows, trunk and scalp. At its worst, psoriasis can interfere with your sleep and even day-to-day tasks.

Psoriasis can go through cycles of flare-ups (some lasting a few weeks or even months) before subsiding for a period of time.

Common triggers that cause these flare-ups include infections, cuts or burns, and certain medications. Psoriasis is a common, chronic disease with no known cure, but there are treatments available to help manage symptoms.

What causes psoriasis?

  • Rapid withdrawal of oral or injected corticosteroids

Is psoriasis painful?

If you’re suffering from psoriasis, you might have experienced extreme pain and sores such as aching, throbbing, burning sensations, stinging, tenderness and/or cramping. These can come and go in cycles but it does not happen to everyone suffering from psoriasis. Psoriasis is also known to cause swollen, tender and painful joints all over your body.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can psoriasis be cured?

There is no permanent cure for psoriasis, but you can treat it effectively. Some treatments can help improve symptoms and lower the risk of developing other health conditions such as psoriatic arthritis, heart disease, obesity, diabetes and even depression.

What are the beginning stages of psoriasis?

Early signs of psoriasis include small bumps and scales on the top of your skin. The surface of the plaque might shed but the scales beneath them might stick together. If you proceed to scratch the rash, the scales might tear from your skin.

What stops psoriasis from spreading?

Topical steroid medications are commonly used to treat mild to moderate cases of psoriasis. This can come in the form of an ointment, cream, lotion, gel, foam, spray, solution or shampoo.

How do I know if I have psoriasis or eczema?

Psoriasis causes mild itching but more severe cases can cause a terrible burning sensation. Eczema leads to intense itching and causes the skin to bleed from scratching.
