What Is Psoriasis And Ayurvedic Treatment For Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune disease that causes the quick buildup of skin cells. The buildup of cells leads to scaling on the skin's surface. Psoriasis is the result of a rapid skin formation process. Typically, skin cells grow deep in the skin and rise slowly to the surface. Eventually, they fall off. The typical life cycle of the skin cells is of a single month.

In people with psoriasis, the skin formation process may occur in just a few days. Because of this, our skin cells don't have the time to fall off. This quick overproduction leads to the buildup of skin cells. Additionally, you can take ayurvedic medicine for the treatment of psoriasis as it is completely safe and has no side effects.

Note: At Arogyadham, you can get treatment for psoriasis from experienced and trained doctors.
