What Are The Possible Complications Of Psoriasis?

Doctor of Homeopathic Medicine (H.M.D.)
Homeopath, Belgaum
What Are The Possible Complications Of Psoriasis?

Folate deficiency - patients with severe psoriasis have a risk of developing folate deficiency. Folate is a B vitamin that is vital for proper nerve function; it also prevents birth defects. Folate also prevents high levels of homocysteine, which increase the risk of heart disease.
Heart problems, obesity and diabetes - a higher percentage of individuals with psoriasis develop heart problems, diabetes and/or obesity. Experts do not know whether there is a genetic link between these conditions and psoriasis. People with moderate-severe psoriasis, ideally should be tested for these conditions. Experts from UC Davis explained in Archives of Dermatology that fat cells in patients with psoriasis secrete cytokines that raise insulin resistance in the liver and muscle, which initiates the destruction of the insulin-producing beta cells in the pancreas.
Bad body temperature regulation - patients with erythrodermic psoriasis may have abnormalities in the body’s ability to control temperature.
Zumbusch psoriasis - this is a combination of erythrodermic and pustular psoriasis. The condition may develop suddenly. The patient may experience fever, chills, muscle weakness and weight loss. Sometimes there may be an over-accumulation of fluids, protein loss, and electrolyte imbalances; in such cases the patient may need to be hospitalized until fluid, chemical balances and body temperature are normalized. Zumbusch psoriasis is especially dangerous if the patient is elderly.
Psoriatic arthritis - in the majority of cases, psoriatic arthritis symptoms are mild. However, the following complications are possible:
Arthritis mutilans - an extremely severe form of chronic rheumatoid arthritis, in which the bones are reabsorbed, resulting in the collapse of soft tissue. When the hands are affected it can cause a phenomenon called telescoping fingers; the feet may also be affected. Patients with other arthritic conditions, such as osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis in the joints of the fingers have a higher risk.
Risk of developing psoriatic arthritis - it is estimated that between 10% and 20% of all patients with psoriasis develop psoriatic arthritis; in about 20% of these people the arthritis symptoms occur before the psoriasis ones.
Cancers - patients with severe psoriasis who received systemic medications (those that affect the whole body) have a higher risk of developing skin cancers and lymphomas.
Psychological and emotional consequences - living with psoriasis often has emotional and social consequences.
Patients may feel embarrassed by having visible plaques and that can lead to depression. In some cases the individual may withdraw from society.
Symptoms may become so severe that patients have to leave their jobs, further increasing the risk of psychological and emotional problems.
Several surveys have shown that a significant number of patients with psoriasis report a negative mental and physical impact that is similar to several chronic conditions, including cancer, hypertension, heart disease, depression and diabetes.
According to a national survey (USA) Psoriasis Uncovered of people with the most severe form of psoriasis:
20% say that their psoriasis contributed towards the loss of a job or resignation.
25% believe that their psoriasis has caused an intimate relationship to end.
43% said psoriasis had prevented them from making new friends.
83% expressed dissatisfaction with their current treatment.
The majority of GPs (general practitioners, primary care physicians), specialists and other health care professionals know and understand that psoriasis has an emotional and psychological impact. It is important that the patient discusses any concerns and anxiety they may have.

Borderline Personality Disorder - Symptoms, Causes And Treatment

MBBS, MD - Psychiatry
Psychiatrist, Pondicherry
Borderline Personality Disorder - Symptoms, Causes And Treatment

Borderline Personality Disorder is purely a personality disorder caused due to multiple factors. An individual suffering from BPD maintains unstable relationships with other people, shows inappropriate emotional reactions and possesses suicidal or self-harm tendencies. Individuals suffering from BPD may find it difficult to stay alone. They fear abandonment and loneliness. Yet they have a tendency of showing mood swings, sudden emotional outburst or anger and hostility. This prevents them from having a long lasting relationship in life.

It usually starts affecting the individual's life from early adulthood. It, however, seems to improve with age. The individuals also have distorted self-image. He or she is unclear about what they want from life or what they are in reality. Even minor incidents can trigger intense reactions in people with BPD.

Symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder:

The signs of suffering from BPD are listed below:

  1. Intense and frantic effort to avoid abandonment or loneliness
  2. Unstable relationships with people and changing the attitude towards them drastically. It can change from being in immense love with each other to intense hatred.
  3. Developing paranoid thoughts and having dissociative feelings-The individual often lacks the feeling of self and suffers from identity crisis.
  4. Suicidal feelings and attempts
  5. Tendency to cause self harm or destruction by drug abuse, driving irresponsibly or be having unprotected sex
  6. Reflecting intense depression
  7. Chronic boredom
  8. Sudden anger and hostility

Causes for Borderline Personality Disorder: Borderline Personality Disorder can be caused due to multiple reasons. Usually it has been found by researchers that it occurs to individuals who have had a disturbed childhood. Complex and unpleasant happenings in the childhood may leave a deep impact on the individual's personality, which comes back as a disorder in his or her early adulthood. From mental, physical to sexual abuse in the childhood can lead to this condition in adults.

Besides, researchers have discovered recently that this illness has hereditary links. Some genes may be responsible for BPD. Improper functioning of the brain is also another factor. Especially, the portion of brain that controls emotions might not be functioning properly in co-ordination with other parts of it.

Treatment:  The treatment of BPD involves three steps- psychotherapy, medications and support from peer and family. Dialectical Behavioral therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and psychodynamic psychotherapy are used in treating the individual. There are no specific medicines to cure identity crisis, boredom and loneliness. However, other symptoms like mood swings, depression and anxiety can be treated with anti-depressants and mood stabilizers. Antipsychotic drugs are also helpful to a certain extent. In extreme cases, hospitalization may be needed. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a Psychiatrist.

Masturbation max twice a week is acceptable but long time addiction can cause sexual weakness, so try to deviate your mind from sexual thought. Start yoga and meditation.

I have been applying Onabet ointment I the ringworm the infection in my skin between my thighs. But I do not get any relief from the problem. It just works fine if the cream is applied if a day is missed. Again it aggravates.

MBBS, DNB (Dermatology)
Dermatologist, Mumbai
Hi! Fungal infections are common due to hot humid weather. Wear loose cotton clothes. Keep the body parts dry. Change underclothes regularly. Changing quickly out of wet, sweaty clothes can reduce the chances of fungal skin infections. Do not share clothes, towels etc. Apply clotrimazole cream twice a day on itchy areas for 6 weeks. If no satisfactory improvement, please see a nearby dermatologist for further assessment.

While having sex my penis started bleeding due to torn of frenulum what will I do next?
Dear lybrate user. The primary symptom of a torn frenulum is pain, which is most severe when partaking in activities that put pressure on the area, such as sexual intercourse. There may be bleeding from the area immediately after the incident, resulting from the tear in the skin. If there is no bleeding, just leave it for a week till it heals. Take care.

Opening of foreskin is smaller then Head of Penies. During growing one should pull the skin back so slowly opening also become big with growth of Penies. You should pull your skin back after applying little oil several time in a day so slowly opening will become big Otherwise go for small surgery known as Circumcision. Do not wast time if by chance during intercourse if. Skin goes back in excitement then it will not come back and swelling and sever pain and have to undergo operation. Head of Penies is pleasure point and sensitive as due to phimosis (As skin does not go back) your Penies is not exposed to touch so it is more sensitive. Apply little anaesthetic 2% ointment.
