There are five different types of psoriasis: plaque, guttate, inverse, pustular and erythrodermic. Of these, plaque is the most common, affecting about 80 percent of the nearly five million people who have this disease. Though the cause is not definitively known, the current scientific consensus is that due to an immune system malfunction, the growth cycle of skin cells is sped up to three or four days instead of the usual month. The skin cells aren't shed the way they're supposed to be, resulting in a build-up of dead skin cells in lesions on the body.
These lesions tend to be dry and scaly. They can occur anywhere on the body, but the areas most likely to be affected are those where dry skin is most prevalent--knees, elbows, scalp, back and face. That may be why Skin-E-Dip has been so successful at helping so many people deal with psoriasis on a daily basis.
There is no cure for psoriasis--meaning that there is no way to treat it and guarantee that it will be gone forever. The right regimen of topical and systemic treatments, however, can manage the condition to the point where it rarely (if ever) has an adverse effect on your life. The combination of treatments that works best for you is entirely a personal thing and cannot be predicted. You simply have to figure it out by experimentation.
Skin-E-Dip, available from Skin-E-Care.com, is a medicated ointment that was first created as a powerful moisturizing treatment for dry skin. Many of our clients have used it as a treatment for eczema or psoriasis with astounding results, however--just look at the testimonials on our site. If you've been disappointed by over-the-counter remedies or even prescription treatments that haven't provided the relief you need, give Skin-E-Dip a try and you may find yourself free of painful and unsightly outbreaks.
