What causes psoriasis?
Psoriasis is an auto immune disease caused when the body’s immune system goes awry. It is partially related to genetics and partially related to external factors or “triggers”. Psoriasis triggers are not universal. What may cause one person’s psoriasis to become active, may not affect another. Established psoriasis triggers include: stress, skin injury, some medications, strep infections and perhaps allergies, diet or weather.Dr. Green performs a variety of very effective psoriasis skin care treatments for patients in the DC, Virginia, and Maryland regions.
