The impact of stress on Psoriasis


New Delhi (India), June 22: It is well known that stress activates the immune system and causes inflammatory responses in the body. It may worsen psoriasis symptoms, creating flare-ups and making the condition more difficult to control. Stress is a common cause of psoriasis flares that can also aggravate itching. As a result, stress management is an especially crucial ability for persons with psoriasis. According to the National Centre of Biotechnology Information, 31-88% of patients indicate stress as a trigger for their psoriasis. Psoriasis represents a persistent inflammatory illness that causes red, scaly areas on the top surface of your skin; there is evidence that stress may contribute to its progression and aggravation.

Medicines that inhibit immunity are frequently used for treating psoriasis. Stress, on the other hand, might counteract the benefits of these medications, making them less effective.

Stress has been shown to have a substantial impact on psoriasis. While it is difficult to eradicate stress entirely from a person’s life, there are ways to manage stress and lessen its impact on psoriasis. Mindfulness practices, exercise, relaxation techniques, and seeking help from a mental health professional are among the examples.

Symptoms and Diagnosis of Psoriasis

Stress can induce an increase in inflammation throughout the body, triggering psoriasis flares, as well as an overproduction of skin cells, resulting in the thick, scaly patches of skin that are characteristic of psoriasis.

Stress can cause an increase in nerve sensitivity, which can make psoriasis symptoms feel more intense. Psoriatic arthritis, a type of arthritis that can develop in people with psoriasis, can be triggered by stress and can cause joint pain and swelling. Stress can cause fatigue and exhaustion, which can make it more difficult to manage psoriasis symptoms.

Psoriasis is usually diagnosed based on a physical examination of the affected skin, a review of medical history, and sometimes a skin biopsy. However, it can be difficult to definitively diagnose psoriasis due to stress, as the symptoms can be similar to those of other types of psoriasis or skin conditions.
