Psoriasis is a chronic recurring disease of the skin. It is characterized by the appearance of plaques, patches, or papules on the surface of skin. The lesions are usually slightly elevated above the normal skin surface, sharply distinguishable from normal skin, and red to reddish-brown in color. They are usually covered with small whitish-silver scales that adhere to the underlying eruption and, if scraped off, leave bleeding points. The extent of the disease may vary from a few tiny lesions to generalized involvement of most of the skin where the elbows, knees, scalp, and chest are involved. It is an autoimmune and long lasting immune disease.

Ayurvedic Description Of Psoriasis :

According to Ayurveda, psoriasis is known as Visarpa and appears due to imbalance of Vata and Kapha. The accumulation of toxins occurs when Vata and Kapha manifest in the skin. These toxins accumulate in deep tissues like Rasa (nutrient plasma), Rakta (blood), Mansa (muscles), and Lasika (lymphatic). These toxins cause contamination of deeper tissues, leading to Psoriasis.


Signs & Symptoms


  • Red, scaly and itchy patches
  • Auspitz’s sign (pinpoint bleeding when scale is removed)
  • Koebner phenomenon (psoriatic skin lesions induced by trauma to the skin)
  • Skin blisters
  • Lesions

Causes and Risk Factors


Genetics play a role in psoriasis, around 33% of people with psoriasis report a family history of it. One of the identical twins has higher chances of getting psoriasis if the other twin has it, the chances increases by almost 70%.


Consuming excessive alcohol and smoking of cigarette, drying of skin, using too hot water for bathing, scratching psoriasis skin lesions can worsen the condition. Infections, climate, seasonal changes and stress too make the condition problematic.


Staphylococcus aureus, Candida albicans are the microbes that make the psoriasis more worsening.


Beta-blockers, lithium, anti- malarial drugs, NSAIDs (Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs), calcium channel blockers are some the drugs that either induce the psoriasis or aggravate the condition.

Self Care Tips

  • Avoid foods that cause Vata and Kapha imbalance in the body.
  • Do not consume foods that have incompatibility with each other, for example- milk with curd, fish and milk.
  • Don’t scratch the lesions or blisters on the skin.
  • Check the drugs dose for avoiding any over dose.
  • Foods that are rich in salt, sugar and which bitter and sour in taste need to be curtailed.
  • Avoid consumption of alcohol and tobacco.
  • Do not curb natural body urges.

To cure psoriasis, toxins need to be removed from body; the digestive process has to be corrected to stop the toxins getting accumulated again. The blood and tissues are affected badly, so they have to be taken care of by the herbal medication to heal them thoroughly.
