Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune skin condition characterized by red, scaly patches that can be both physically and emotionally distressing for those who are affected. While the exact cause of psoriasis is unknown, inflammation plays a crucial role in its development and progression. In recent years, the focus on managing psoriasis has shifted towards anti-inflammatory approaches. This article discusses about the role of anti-inflammatory actives in relation to psoriasis.
Psoriasis Pathophysiology: Understanding Inflammation
- Immune System Dysregulation:
Normally, immune cells defend the body against infection, but in psoriasis the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy skin cells, triggering an overactive response.
- Accelerated Skin Cell Growth:
This immune misinterpretation leads to an abnormal acceleration in the production of skin cells causing them to mature rapidly and accumulate on the surface. Generally, process of skin cell turnover occurs gradually.
- Inflammation Cascade:
As these excess skin cells accumulate on the skin's surface, the immune system responds with an inflammatory response. Inflammation manifests as redness, swelling and discomfort, creating the visible symptoms associated with psoriasis.
- Cytokine Overproduction:
Cytokines, signaling molecules in the body, play a pivotal role in psoriasis. The immune misinterpretation causes an imbalance resulting in overproduction of cytokines which further exacerbates inflammation and disturbs the normal balance of skin cell growth.
- Chronic Inflammation:
The chronic inflammation not only affects the skin's appearance but also impacts its integrity. The skin barrier weakens, making it more susceptible to external irritants and contributing to the cycle of inflammation.
Addressing inflammation is an important aspect of psoriasis management and anti-inflammatory actives plays a crucial role in reducing the symptoms and improving the quality of life of individuals. Whether through topical therapies such as systemic medications or dietary interventions, the goal is to modulate the immune response and reduce the inflammatory processes that cause psoriasis. As research advances, anti-inflammatory agents are likely to remain a cornerstone in a comprehensive approach to psoriasis treatment.

Allopathic medicines for psoriasis such as topical corticosteroids, immunosuppressants, methotrexate, cyclosporine or biologics may have potential side effects, including systemic issues and in some cases, they may only provide temporary relief without addressing the underlying causes or preventing long-term recurrence. Additionally, prolonged use of certain medications may lead to tolerance or dependency.
