 vitamins for psoriasis
 Vitamins are essential in psoriasis, since as coenzymes (part enzymes), they are involved in metabolism. And since it is a violation of metabolic processes underlies the development of psoriasis, for whatever reason did not happen the violation, vitamins appointed times.


Why is it necessary vitamins for psoriasis

Vitamin therapy is considered to be non-specific treatment protivopsoriaticheskim as vitamins, actively influence the cellular metabolism Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting  Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting
 . The need for vitamin due to their participation in the construction of many enzymes, which in turn regulate the metabolism in the body and through the state of immunity.

As part of an integrated treatment prescribed vitamins for psoriasis: (B1, B2, B5, B6, B12, B13, B15, folic acid), C, D, A, E, D2.


Water-soluble vitamins

The water-soluble vitamins include vitamins B, C and R. They all have a place in metabolism. For example, vitamin B1 (thiamine and coenzyme kokarboksilaza) regulates carbohydrate metabolism and promotes regression of lesions in psoriasis, vysypnyh elements. In psoriasis kokarboksilazu administered intramuscularly or intravenously at 0, 1.5 grams a day, a course of 10-15 injections.

Vitamin B2 (riboflavin) regulates redox reaction, thus participating in all types of exchange. It is also administered intramuscularly to 2 ml every other day, a course of 10-15 injections.

Vitamin B5 (calcium pantothenate) is also involved as a coenzyme in redox reactions. His designate the interior of 0, 1-0, 2 g three or four times a day long courses, up to three months.

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) is involved in the metabolism of amino acids and fat metabolism, promotes the excretion of cholesterol and triglycerides. It is administered intramuscularly at 10 mg daily or every other day for four weeks.

Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) is involved in protein metabolism positive effect on th state of the liver and nervous system, has antianemic effect, regulates the metabolism of carbohydrates and fats. Vitamin B12 is administered intramuscularly 50 to 400 micrograms a day for four weeks.

Vitamin B13 (orotic acid) is involved in protein metabolism. In the treatment of psoriasis are used orotic acid potassium salt (potassium orotate) inside for 30 minutes before a meal to 0, 25-0, 5 g of 3 times per day. The course of treatment - a month.

Vitamin B15 (pangamic acid) is particularly important for forms of psoriasis such as psoriatic arthritis and erythroderma Arthritis - a variety of forms and complications  Arthritis - a variety of forms and complications
 As helps restore the lipid metabolism, absorption of oxygen by the tissues, the deposition of energy reserves (glycogen) in the muscles and liver. Vitamin B15 has anti-inflammatory and reduces the sensitivity of tissues to various chemicals. Calcium pangamate designate the interior of 0, 05-0, 1 g tablets 3-4 times a day for a month.

Folic acid is involved in protein and fat metabolism, together with vitamin B12, it stimulates the synthesis of erythrocytes. Her designate the interior of 0, 01-0, 03 g 3 times a day for a month.

Widely used as vitamins such as C and P involved in the regulation of redox processes, promotes the synthesis of steroid hormones, the formation of collagen, cell membranes seal capillaries. Patients with psoriasis appointed Ascorutinum Ascorutin - strengthen capillary walls and warn toxic effects svob  Ascorutin - strengthen capillary walls and warn toxic effects svob
   tablets, which includes both the vitamin. Ascorutin taking a tablet three times a day for a month.


Fat-soluble vitamins

This group of vitamins include vitamins A, E and D. Since vitamin A (retinol) is actively involved in the process keratogeneza (normal growth of skin cells, hair and nails), his lack of psoriasis leads to disruption of the process, increased dryness and peeling of the skin .

Vitamin E in psoriasis (tocopherol), activates the cell metabolism by participating in the synthesis of DNA, RNA and tissue respiration. It is also a natural antioxidant Antioxidants: the truth about the notorious benefits  Antioxidants: the truth about the notorious benefits
   and protects cells from the toxic oxidation products.

Vitamins A and E mutually reinforce each other's action their most commonly prescribed drug in the form of complex Aevitum inside while eating on the capsule a day for a month. Particularly useful are these vitamins for psoriasis head - they restore not only the skin but also hair growth, as well as their appearance.

Psoriasis Vitamin D - now considered a hot topic, as this vitamin regulates exchange of phosphorus and calcium, helps to seal the cell membrane, has a positive effect on regenerative processes in the skin. In psoriasis prescribe vitamin D2, hoping its dosage per kg body weight of the patient. The course of treatment in this vitamin depends on the tolerance of the patient.

What vitamins drink in psoriasis? This question can be answered only by a doctor.

Vulgar psoriasis - the most common form of the disease

January 5, 2014

 psoriasis vulgaris
 Vulgar psoriasis or psoriasis is simple - it is a typical appearance of psoriasis in a first characteristic papules, and then merge with each other plaques covered with white scales desquamated epithelium of the skin. Vulgar psoriasis can occur easily with infrequent exacerbations, and can often worsen, and the skin elements at the same time can occupy large areas of the body surface.


Why start psoriasis vulgaris

Vulgar psoriasis is also called simple or blyashkovidnym - is the most common form of psoriasis with characteristic skin disorders. So far it is not known exactly what is the cause of psoriasis vulgaris.

Most researchers are of the opinion that the reasons usually several - genetic factors, immune disorders (psoriasis is considered an autoimmune disease, that is allergic to its own tissues), metabolic disorders Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things  Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things
 Caused by a variety of other diseases and intoxications, neurohumoral shifts caused by stress and so on.



The first manifestations of psoriasis vulgaris are papular rash red-pink color, covered with white and gray scales scaly skin. In less severe disease when affected less than 3% of the skin, such papular rash may slightly increase in size, after which the disease as it stops in its development, and then begins the regression of elements of an eruption - the center of papules pale, and they first take the form of rings and then disappear.

When psoriasis vulgaris of moderate severity is affected by 3 to 10% of the surface of the skin. In this primary papules grow in size, merge with other papules, forming large plaques covered with whitish flakes on top as if sprinkled with flour. Particularly large plaques are called stearin lakes.

More than 10% of the surface of the skin is affected in severe psoriasis vulgaris - the so-called common vulgar psoriasis. In this case, the plaque often take strange shapes and are distributed on the trunk, upper and lower limbs, face and neck.

If this disease is left untreated or treated incorrectly, perhaps progression of the process. The disease, which previously flowed easily becomes moderate and severe. Sometimes psoriasis occurs in the form of a continuous disease (chronic plaque psoriasis vulgaris), but most recurrences are replaced by remissions.

In some cases, psoriasis vulgaris becomes more severe forms - pustular, or erythrodermic psoriasis Arthropathic.



Treatment of psoriasis vulgaris should be conducted in parallel with a full examination of the patient and identify his illness and the centers of infection, which could trigger a relapse and treatment of psoriasis. Most often psoriasis develops in diseases of the digestive system.

The patient is also recommended low-fat diet, regular meals with the exception of diet foods that could sustain the inflammatory process in the skin. This fat fried meat, carbohydrate (candy, pastries, sodas), strong tea and coffee, spicy, smoked, salted dishes.

Mild to moderate forms of psoriasis vulgaris are trying to heal with the help of external funds. Assign ointment on the basis of tar, salicylic acid - they are well reduce inflammation, inhibit the amplification process of reproduction and the withering away of the surface cells of the epidermis, that is, prevent the appearance of scales on psoriatic plaques.

If the inflammation is not reduced, prescribe short courses of ointments and creams containing corticosteroids. In recent years, is used to treat psoriasis creams, which include active analogs of vitamin D, affecting the metabolism of the skin cells. These creams reduce the rate of skin cell division (proliferation), reduce scaling, inflammation, have a positive effect on the immune defenses of the skin.

At the same time to improve cellular metabolism always appoint B vitamins B vitamins: the body useful helpers  B vitamins: the body useful helpers
 , C, F, A, E and D.

In severe forms of psoriasis vulgaris prescribed systemic treatment - immunomodulators Immunomodulators: a contract with the protective forces of the body  Immunomodulators: a contract with the protective forces of the body

The beneficial effect of providing ultraviolet radiation, which, depending on the wavelength is divided into types A (long-wave - himiofototerapiya or PUVA therapy with preliminary reception photosensitizer) and B (medium-wave - selective phototherapy).

Vulgar psoriasis treatment requires a long qualified.
