Psoriasis is a chronic, noncontagious, multisystem, inflammatory disorder.

Patients with psoriasis have a genetic predisposition for the illness, which most commonly manifests itself on the skin of the elbows, knees, scalp, lumbosacral areas, intergluteal clefts, and glans penis. The joints are also affected by psoriasis in up to 30% of patients with the disease.Psoriasis has a tendency to wax and wane with flares related to systemic or environmental factors, including life stress events and infection. It impacts quality of life and potentially long-term survival. There should be a higher clinical suspicion for depression in the patient with psoriasis. A 45 years aged gentleman Mr. R.S.V. came for treatment of Psoriasis. He was suffering from psoriasis of the palms and the soles. He was under one or the other treatment from the last six years. He was mostly under steroidal creams and Ayurvedic treatment. He was also suffering from mild dandruff. In the last six months, he had developed spots on the legs and hands and ankles. This was the first time that the psoriasis had come on his body. Earlier, it was only restricted to the palms and soles. These new spots disturbed him and for the first time, he got scared of this disease. When he reported to the center he had stopped all the treatment for one month. Hence one could see distinct psoriasis lesions on his palms and soles and lower legs. There were some cuts and the skin below the scales was tender and red. Since the last few months he had also developed urticaria like rash and he had to take an antihistamine almost 2-3 times a week. His case was studied in detail. He was a textile engineer. He was of large frame and seeing his physique, any one would mistake him for a military commander. He was a commanding person notwithstanding. He had a dedicated team of technicians. He would get orders from a MNC and get it done from local manufacturers. He was into marketing. His entire team would get employed with him. They would ensure world class quality, and honor his commitment. He never liked shoddy work. If the manufacturer compromised upon quality, then they would leave en mass. He was very impatient and irritable. He was short tempered. If he quarreled with anyone then he would break the relationship for ever. He admitted being very egoistic and violent in the past. He was impulsive, but commanded total faith from his workers. He was very social and had leadership qualities. He was helping in nature. His parents suffered from Diabetes and High Blood Pressure. He was thermally more sensitive to heat. He perspired profusely in the summer. Dr Shah studied the case details and prescribed Nat-Mur 200 C and a research based remedy. In three months there was good relief in the new spots i.e. spots on the legs, hands and ankles. The palms and soles gradually healed and in six months there were very good improvement. The dandruff recovered. There were no new spots anywhere in the last six months; this was really very relieving for the patient. The symptoms of urticaria had also reduced very well. In the last six months I see so many patients suffering from Psoriasis! The patient exclaimed. This is a common phenomenon. Once we get affected with a particular

disease, we become very sensitive to it and keep thinking and noticing our self and others.
