Psoriasis Treatment in Delhi

Psoriasis is a skin disorder where the cells multiply ten times faster, resulting in bumpy patches on the skin's surface. If you or a family member is dealing with psoriasis, consider consulting the skin experts at Mehektagul Dermaclinic for effective psoriasis treatment in Delhi. The patches are red and have white scales on lighter skin tones. They appear brown or purple, with grey scales on darker skin. While psoriasis can appear anywhere on the body, it is mostly seen around the elbows, knees, scalp, and lower back.

Though psoriasis is non-contiguous, it can be hereditary and happen to members of the same family. Get personalized care and treatments tailored to your specific needs.

Plagues, scales, and crusts are common symptoms of psoriasis. They are red with different-coloured scales and can be itchy and painful. Some plagues may ooze blood and grow in size to spread over the skin. 

While no one knows what exactly causes psoriasis, experts believe it is due to a combination of conditions that trigger the immune system and result in inflammation. This results in new skin cells forming 10 times faster. For example, it takes the skin cells 10 to 30 days to form. In people with psoriasis, the cells form in 3 to 4 days. 

Other things that trigger psoriasis are:

  • Cuts and scrapes
  • Surgery 
  • Emotional stress
  • Strep infections
  • Medicines used for blood pressure
  • Mood stabilizers 
  • Antibiotics 
  • Lithium
  • Antimalarial meds, etc.

After determining the underlying cause, the expert dermatologists at the clinic will decide the most appropriate psoriasis treatment in Delhi, depending on the severity of the condition and your skin type.

Types of Psoriasis

Psoriasis is classified into four types:

  • Pustular: Causes discoloured, scaly skin with tiny pustules on the palms and soles.
  • Guttate: Appears in childhood as small spots in pink, red, purple, or brown on the torso and limbs.
  • Erythrodermic: Causes intense discoloration and shedding of scales; a severe condition that needs immediate treatment.
  • Inverse: Causes discoloured and shiny lesions in the skin folds like armpits, groin, breasts, etc.

Diagnosis and Treatment for Psoriasis

psoriasis treatment in Delhi: The psoriasis treatment options including Topical Medications, Light Therapy, Full-body Body Medication, and Diet Management.

Psoriasis is diagnosed by examining the skin, nails, and scalp along with a medical history. In order to determine whether it is genetic, the dermatologist will also inquire about family history. Mehektagul Dermaclinic provides a range of effective psoriasis treatment in Delhi. The treatment options include:

  • Topical Medications 

Creams and ointments containing one or more of the ones mentioned below are prescribed. The creams are applied to the affected area twice a day. However, topical medication alone will not cure psoriasis. It should be combined with other treatments to get better results. Additionally, creams with salicylic acid are not recommended for kids younger than 12 or pregnant women. 

  • Corticosteroids
  • Synthetic vitamin D
  • TCI 
  • Salicylic acid
  • Coal tar (used for over 100 years).
  • Light Therapy

The psoriasis-affected skin receives treatment using laser light. The doctor will determine the type of light and duration of each session. People with moderate to severe psoriasis will get good results when light therapy is combined with other treatments. It should not be tried at home, though light devices are available on the market. 

  • Full-body Body Medication 

Some people need full-body medication to treat psoriasis, especially if it affects their joints. The following medications are prescribed by the doctor, depending on their health condition:

  • Biologics
  • Ret-inoi-d pill
  • TYK2 inhibitor
  • Diet Management 

While food doesn’t cure psoriasis, it can accelerate the results of other treatments and reduce the symptoms. 

  • Maintain a healthy body weight
  • Consume a heart-healthy diet
  • Take vitamins and supplements prescribed by the doctor
  • Avoid foods that trigger psoriasis (processed foods, meat, dairy, etc.).

People with psoriasis should stay away from tanning beds and excessive exposure to sunlight. Use sunscreen when going out and consume healthy food. Avoid smoking and alcohol, as they can aggravate the condition. Manage your stress levels and emotional health to reduce the risk. 

Psoriasis can be effectively and efficiently managed. To do so, book an appointment at our advanced skincare clinic, Mehektagul Dermaclinic and get the best psoriasis treatment in Delhi. The expert skin specialists at the clinic provide an accurate diagnosis to treat psoriasis effectively.
