Psoriasis is a skin condition which affects roughly two out of every 100 people in the UK, and is characterised by inflammation, redness, itching, and the appearance of scaly skin flakes. In some cases, pustules can also manifest around the area affected. The condition is a chronic one, typically passing through periods of flare-up and remission. Symptoms can develop at any age, but it more commonly encountered for the first time prior to the age of 35. It doesn’t pose a serious threat to a person’s health, but nonetheless, psoriasis can be a frustrating and testing condition to live with.
It isn’t fully understood why some people develop the condition and others do not, but it is thought that the immune system plays pivotal role in the onset of a flare-up. Psoriasis occurs when new skin cells generate and replace older skin cells at an increased rate, and this causes excess skin in the area affected to rise to the surface and shed. The replacement of these skin cells is thought to be instigated by the immune system, which mistakenly perceives a threat and reacts by releasing chemicals which cause an inflammatory response.
Various triggers have been associated with the activation of the condition, but these are different from person to person. Oft-cited instigating factors include skin injuries, stress, the over-consumption of alcohol, smoking, reaction to medication, hormonal changes or infection of the throat.
Treatment, particularly in cases where symptoms are moderate to severe, is usually given in the form of corticosteroids. Metosyn works by preventing the release of inflammatory chemicals by the immune system, and this helps to soothe irritation and facilitate healing.
