Cerises Skin Disease Symptoms And Treatment Options
Cerises skin disease
Cerises skin condition is a disease which is autoimmune. It is experienced when the immunity system of the body gets confused with the skin cells as pathogens, and sends the wrong signals, which speeds up the skin cell’s growth cycle. Cerises skin disease
is not contagious. But, cerises skin disease has been confirmed to increase the risk of stroke. There are five types of cerises; erythrodermic, plaque, inverse, guttate and pustular.
Plaque cerises is the most common form of this disease; they are white and red scaly patches seen on the upper layer of skin.
In cerises skin condition, the knees, scalp and elbows are affected.
Cerises skin disease is considered to be chronic (long-term) and non-curable. The course of this disease varies, as it periodically gets worse and better. It is common in this disease that it would be gone for years but would still stay in remission. Usually the condition gets worse in the cold winters.
The cerises skin disease treatment depends on your physician and also on the severity, type of disease and the skin area involved. For the mild cases; the doctors give skin lotions, creams and sprays, and they have effective results. And sometimes a steroid injection is given. And for moderate to severe conditions, which involves a larger area of the body, those skin products may not be very effective. These types of cases are usually given systemic medications or ultra-violet light treatment. As the internal medications have great risk.
It should be kept in mind that as all the medications are not 100% effective for every patient and all of them have some side effects. So in order to take any medication, you should always ask your physician that what the best choice is for you. The potential benefit and risks of the medications should be considered for an individual patient and the type of cerises he is suffering.
