Psoriasis makes your life very difficult to lead. Stress is the most important trigger for psoriasis.
This is an autoimmune disease which causes excess growth of skin cells.
Genital psoriasis increases the stress level among the patients and there by increasing aggravation in psoriatic conditions.
Genital psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder where emotional stress and disturbance is at its peak. Most of you with genital psoriasis can experience the difficulty in your sexual life.
Genital psoriasis appears as a red shiny skin on your body. You will observe them at pubis, upper thigh, fold between the thigh and groin, genitals (vulva for women, penis and scrotum for men), skin between anus and vulva or anus and scrotum. Usually the most common location for psoriasis is on the hands and knees.

Narrowband UV therapy to treat psoriasis:
Narrowband UV therapy is two types which are type A and B. UA therapy is considered as more effective than UV-B therapy in treating patents with chronic psoriasis. Psoralen-UV-A (PUVA) therapy includes the combination of 8-methoxypsoralen medication and exposure to UV-A radiations.
In narrowband UV-B (NB-UVB) therapy you will be exposed to UV-B radiation and is considered as safer than PUVA. Two hours before beginning the UV treatment, patients in the NB-UVB group took a placebo and those in the PUVA group took 10-mg of 8-methoxypsoralen. In this each patient will receive 7.5 mg intravenous alefacept once a week for 12 weeks. At the end of the period the patient will observe great improvement.
But, the treatments like ultra violet light and medications can cause squamous cell carcinoma. This is a second most common form of skin cancer.
Green tea for psoriasis:
Green tea greatly helps to prevent or reduce inflammation, controls the production of the protein that causes the problem and thereby regulates skin cell production.
Green can be considered as a healthy alternative for UV therapy and medications as this won’t cause any side effects. Not only you can drink the tea, but also you can take it in pill form, powders, liquids, and capsules. For the treatment of psoriasis you need to take at least 100mg a day i.e. three or four cups of tea.
In recent days there are new injections released into the market which can be injected into the skin to help combat psoriasis.
Sunlight is very effective for psoriasis. But, it can lead to skin cancer if exposed overtime. So, you need to do it in moderation and in consultation with your physician.
