When we are talking about the effect of sunlight in Psoriasis, first we should know about Psoriasis.
Psoriasis is a long-lasting autoimmune disease characterized by patches of abnormal skin or you can say that it is a chronic skin condition caused by an overactive immune system. In psoriasis, the skin gets inflamed and red rashes appear on the surface of the skin which begins to itch excessively. Symptoms include flaking, inflammation and development of thick white silvery or red patches of various sizes on the skin that are covered with dry, silvery scales.
When we are discussing the effect of season so in most people, we have seen that the winter season, when the temperature of atmosphere is low, always triggers the condition because in winter a combination of dry air, decreased sunlight exposure, and colder temperatures can all contribute to winter psoriasis flares.
During summer season, you can say that most people get good improvement in sunlight. Mostly sunlight helps reduce the psoriatic patches & higher humidity relives the dry skin. Many dermatologists think that summer season is very helpful for psoriatic patient because UV light suppresses the skin’s replication and shedding which is overactive in those with psoriasis.
However in summer, some precautions should be taken by psoriatic patient. Like, in summer, the psoriatic patient should prefer to wear loose & cotton cloth. Avoid the direct exposure of AC because it can trigger the scaling of the skin.
When you are wearing the summer clothes then you should take care not to stay in sun for a long time to save yourselves from sunburn. As well as you should apply the sunscreen on an unaffected area.
Proper moisturizing the skin also helps to alleviate the symptoms.
Anxiety & stress are also the triggering causes of psoriasis. So live your life with peace & relaxation. Do yoga & meditation for getting the peaceful life.
