Q & A

Psoriasis is a chronic, inflammatory skin disease. It speeds up the life cycle of cells. And it builds up rapidly on the surface of the skin. These extra skin cells form red scaling patches, usually affecting the elbows, knees, and scalp. These patches are itchy and painful. Psoriasis is not contagious. There is no cure for psoriasis, but it can be controlled with medication. The main purpose of the treatment is to stop the skin cells from growing so fast.

Exorex, also known as cutaneous emulsion, is a skin lotion used to treat skin and scalp psoriasis. It contains coal tar solution, which has mild antiseptic and antibacterial effects. It prevents itching and softens the outer layer of the skin. Exorex lotion decreases the thickening and scaling of the skin.

Who gets psoriasis?

This condition can affect men, women and children alike at any point in their lives; the average age to develop it would be between 10 and 30. Approximately 3% of the UK population will have a form of psoriasis at any one time.

Is there a cure?

No, there is no definitive cure that currently exists. In recent years, there have been many great advancements towards understanding why psoriasis occurs, so any optimism placed in finding a cure may prove justified in coming years.

Will my psoriasis go away?

In some cases, the condition may clear and lay dormant for years, but for others, it is a chronic long-term condition. Most people can speak with their doctor and work out a flexible regime which will keep the disease at bay.

What’s the best environment for psoriasis?

Dry and cold weather conditions seem to make psoriasis worse in a lot of patients; vice versa, exposure to sunlight and ultraviolet light can prove beneficial. Anything that brings damage to the skin, such as a scratch or a burn, can worsen the condition. Certain medications can also have the same effect.
