Psoriasis patients may have relatives with the disease but not necessarily inheritance in every generation since psoriasis has polygenetic inheritance. Psoriasis can occur anytime from newborn to seventies but commonly affects young individuals. Severe emotional stress, alcohol intake, smoking, cold climate, infection and certain drugs exacerbates psoriasis. Psoriasis lesions may occur at sites of trivial trauma like scratches, incisions, burns, etc and thus one should avoid trauma to skin. Individuals with psoriasis over scalp should avoid harsh combing with sharp toothed comb and rather use a blunt tooth comb gently. In case of lesions over palms and soles, one should avoid walking barefoot and always use protective footwear as very trivial trauma while walking barefoot may trigger new lesions of psoriasis or worsen the pre-existing ones. If there are psoriasis lesions on beard area, then one should avoid shaving rather trimming may be tried in order to avoid exacerbation of psoriasis lesions. Similarly people with psoriasis lesions over scalp should avoid tonsuring. Regular moisturising of skin with coconut oil or other moisturizers should be done. The oil should preferably be applied immediately after bath over mildly wet skin followed by 10-15 minutes of sunlight exposure in the morning.
Starting an early treatment for skin lesions is beneficial. Limited skin disease usually responds to ointments and light therapy. Extensive skin disease requires oral tablets and sometimes injections and after the skin lesions respond well then treatment is gradually tapered and stopped. Self-medication should be avoided. Even though psoriasis has an unpredictable course and cure cannot be guaranteed but psoriasis can be managed well giving a good quality of life. Obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, high lipid levels and heart disease are the bad companies of psoriasis. One should adapt a healthy active lifestyle to keep the bad companies away as they worsen psoriasis. Balanced diet, regular exercise, meditation or yoga or other relaxation methods are beneficial and in people taking non vegetarian diet, intake of oily fish may be beneficial. It’s not worth worrying about cure instead start early treatment for psoriasis.
I have been checked by upper endoscopy and found chronic pharyngitis with tonsillitis. What should I do now. Please advise.
An inguinal hernia refers to the condition when tissues, such as those which are a part of your intestines, find a weak spot in your abdominal muscles and protrudes outwards. This may often result in a painful bulge, especially at times when you bend over, lift heavy objects or cough.
Usually, if the hernia is small, your doctor might just ask you to wait and leave it untouched. In children, manual pressure may also be applied to reduce bulging. Enlarged or very painful hernias, however, require surgery for the prevention of complications and for relieving discomfort.
Generally, there are two types of hernia repair surgeries which are as follows:
- Open hernia repair surgery: This type of surgery is carried under sedation by local anaesthesia, and ensures an incision being made in the groin to push back the protruding tissues into the abdomen. The weakened area is then sewn back, and reinforced with the help of a synthetic mesh, a procedure called hernioplasty. The opening is then closed down using staples, surgical glue or stitches. Though movement as soon as possible is recommended, exertion must be avoided.
- Laparoscopy: This is a kind of minimally invasive surgery, done with the aid of local anaesthesia. In this procedure, multiple small incisions are made in the abdominal region and then gas is used in order to inflate it, to make visibility easier.
A tiny camera is attached at the end of a small tube (a laparoscope) and then inserted into the cavity created by the incision. With the aid of the increased visibility facilitated by the camera, the surgeon then inserts other tiny instruments through the remaining incisions for repairing the hernia, with the help of a small synthetic mesh.
This kind of surgery allows your surgeon to avoid the scar tissue which might be present from a hernia and which might have been repaired earlier. Laparoscopy is thus also recommended for those with bilateral hernias (on both the sides).
However, research has shown that this kind of repairing may also increase the likelihood of recurrence or some other complications or risks.
Risks are usually reduced when the surgery is performed by a surgeon who has a lot of prior experience in the same.
