Psoriasis is a chronic and recurring skin disorder. It usually occurs between the ages of 14 and 24 and persists for life. However if proper Ayurvedic treatment is initiated in the early stages itself one can restrict the severity and frequency of attacks.
Components of Psoriasis
The exact cause still remains a mystery, some cases may be triggered by viral infections, immunisation or a period of extreme stress.
Psoriasis has a hereditary component, some people can be carriers, i.e., they pass on the disease, even if they do not actually show the symptoms themselves.
In women, the condition may clear up in pregnancy but unfortunately it often reappears after the birth of the baby.
Sings & Symptoms

In Ayurvedic system of medicine, it is known as Kitibha. Blood impurities associated with some emotional factors are listed as the causative factors for psoriasis.
