What Is Plaque Psoriasis?

An itchy, chronic skin condition, plaque psoriasis can feel like torture. The severe skin rashes are red, patchy and scaly, causing discomfort. Common sites of these rashes include the scalp, elbows, knees, torso, and generally in the folds of the skin.

While doctors are not completely certain at the causes of plaque psoriasis, we do know it is an autoimmune disorder. This means it occurs when your immune system attacks itself. When your immune system attacks healthy skin, new cells grow to replace them at a fast rate. This is what causes the itchy, red patches of skin.

There are many factors which can cause plaque psoriasis to flare up. These factors differ from person to person, but they generally include:

  • Diet
  • Exposure to a plan or allergen
  • A co-occurring illness
  • Stress
  • Injury
  • Excessive drinking or smoking
  • Changes in the weather
  • Certain medications

Unfortunately, there is no permanent cure for plaque psoriasis. However, there are effective ongoing treatments that can help keep symptoms under control.

How Can Plaque Psoriasis Be Treated?

Thanks to a better understanding of the factors which contribute to this condition, systemic therapy (infusion and injection) from Infusion for Health has been found to be one of the most effective ways to manage it.

What is infusion therapy for plaque psoriasis like? Infusion therapy refers to treatment where biologic medication is administered intravenously. Unlike difficult to swallow pills which must be digested, the infusion enters the bloodstream directly. This means relief from the symptoms of plaque psoriasis begins faster, without any delay, after a single visit to one of our centers. Injection treatments work in a similar manner, but are injected instead of being done through IV.

Because plaque psoriasis is an ongoing, chronic condition, patients can regularly schedule their therapy sessions. This helps continually improve symptoms and provide the hope of a rash-free, pain-free life.
