Facts About Psoriasis

You can use the below facts.

  • According to ‘The National, UAE’, the disease, psoriasis, is estimated to affect two per cent of the world's population. The prevalence in the UAE is more than double, at 4.3 per cent
  • According to International Federation of Psoriasis Associations (IFPA), it is estimated that more than 200,000 people in the UAE suffer from psoriasis and each year, 7600 additional people get the disease. Equally affecting both sexes, Psoriasis can appear at any age, although it usually strikes for the first time between the ages of 15 and 25.

Psoriasis is a long-term skin disorder that results in red, thickened patches on the skin, with the shedding of silvery scales. The condition may be accompanied by discomfort, itching and/or pain.

The skin is made up of layers and skin cells that undergo a cycle of 28 days. This means the cells which are formed in the lower layer gradually move upwards and appear on the surface after 28 days to be shed. However, in psoriasis, the cells start growing very rapidly, without waiting for the earlier ones to shed, which leads to a build-up of a thick layer of cells, leading to the thickening of the skin, and red patches with scaling in the affected area.
