Psoriasis Causes Risk Factors

(1) The modern medical system has not been able to establish the exact cause of psoriasis. Recent studies have shown that psoriasis involves an abnormality in the mechanism in which the skin grows and replaces itself. This abnormality is related to the metabolism of amino acids, the protein chemicals which are nature’s basic building blocks for the reproduction of cell tissues.

(2) Heredity also plays a role in the development of psoriasis as it tends to occur in families.

(3) About 30 per cent of the patients have a family history of the disease.

(4) The factors that aggravate and precipitate the outbreak of psoriasis are injury to the skin in the form of cuts, burns, and minor abrasions, changes in the seasons, physical and emotional stress, infections and use of certain medicines for the treatment of other diseases.
