The precise cause is still a mystery, but it’s believed to be a genetic disease caused by an overactive immune system.
Flare ups can be caused by many triggers, including:

  • Infections (including fungal infections and strep throat)
  • Skin injuries
  • Smoking
  • Heavy alcohol use
  • Sunburns
  • Cold, dry weather

Psoriasis is not contagious; there is no way to spread it to another person. It is a genetic disease.

Patients suffering from psoriasis have been found to have higher acidic concentrations in their saliva, which typically causes tooth decay to occur more quickly. In this way, psoriasis may negatively impact teeth. That’s why proper dental care is even more important for patients who have been diagnosed with psoriasis.

No. Psoriasis is a skin condition, but it doesn’t typically cause bruising. However, bruises can cause psoriasis flare ups.

Treatment will depend on a few factors, including the severity of a flare up and its location on the body.
Common psoriasis treatments include:

  • Topical therapies
  • Light therapies
  • Oral medications
  • Injections

Our board-certified dermatologists in Sewickley, Pennsylvania, can help build a custom psoriasis treatment plan to help you find relief fast.
