Hahnemann's rule to treat the totality of symptoms complained of by the patient, the only method by which we may cure our patients. 6/8/2014Prof G R Mohan
How patients come to us 1.Skin eruption that has been for years with Cortisone used suppressed eruptions. 2.Eruptions cured earlier and suffering from various other problems. Prof G R Mohan6/8/2014
Prof G R Mohan If Skin eruption that has been for years and suppressed with Cortisones Prescribe best indicated remedy based on the generals, mental emotional and on skin problems.
If Eruptions cured earlier and suffering from various other problems If eruptions are treated, there will be problems The organism should be stimulated by right remedy to evoke a skin eruptions 6/8/2014Prof G R Mohan
Body must be left to fight the eruptions it self. How long to leave the eruption ? It depends up on the severity. If treated earlier for cosmetic reasons or itching The case will be spoiled. Case will be partially suppressed with half the eruption being driven inside and other half reaming on the skin Prof G R Mohan6/8/2014
Psoriasis Psoriasis is a common, genetically determined, inflammatory skin disorder of unknown cause which in its most usual from is characterized by well-demarcated raised red scaling patches that preferentially localize to the extensor surface. 6/8/2014Prof G R Mohan
Pathophysiology The keratinocytes hyper proliferation due to excessive division of cells in the basal layers. Epidermis and dermis are involved Hyperkinetic with increased cell production of new cells times, Increased epidermal volume, Rate of nail growth increased, Formation of abnormal nucleated,loose scaly stratum cornea. 6/8/2014Prof G R Mohan
PSORIASIS Occurs in 1% to 2% population. Affects males( more) Age on set: early : 16-22y late : 55-60y 6/8/2014Prof G R Mohan
Aetiology The cause is unclear but involves immune stimulation of epidermal keratinocytes; T cells seem to play a central role. Family history is common, and certain genes and HLA antigens (Cw6, B13, B17) are associated with psoriasis. An environmental trigger is thought to evoke an inflammatory response and subsequent hyperproliferation of keratinocytes. 6/8/2014Prof G R Mohan
Basic defects Genetic Bio chemical Immunological 6/8/2014Prof G R Mohan
Precipitating factors Trauma Infection Sun light Emotion season 6/8/2014Prof G R Mohan

Clinical features common, chronic, and recurrent Very demarcated margin (plaque) Papulo -squamus disorder. dry,well circumscribed, silvery, scaly papules &plaques of various sizes 6/8/2014Prof G R Mohan
SYMPTOMS & SIGNS Gradual onset, Remitting &relapsing. Usually non itchy Horny layers Increased epidermis thickening. 6/8/2014Prof G R Mohan
SYMPTOMS & SIGNS(2) NAILS INVOLVED WITH STIPPING, PITTING, THICKENING & DIS- COLORATIONS. PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS IS COMPL 6/8/2014Prof G R Mohan
6/8/2014Prof G R Mohan These cycles of flare-ups and remissions often lead to feelings of sadness, despair, guilt and anger as well as low self-esteem. Depression is higher in people who have psoriasis than in the general population. Feelings of embarrassment also are common.
Severity of psoriasis Psoriasis is graded as mild (affecting less than 3% of the body); moderate (affecting 3-10% of the body) or severe several scales exist. 6/8/2014Prof G R Mohan
Psoriasis Area Severity Index Psoriasis Area Severity Index (PASI) The Psoriasis Area Severity Index (PASI) is the most widely used measurement tool for psoriasis. PASI combines the assessment of the severity of lesions and the area affected into a single score in the range 0 (no disease) to 72 (maximal disease). 3Psoriasis Area Severity Index 6/8/2014Prof G R Mohan

Views of authors about psoriasis of tongue They report that fissured tongue (FT) and benign migratory glossitis (BMG; geographic tongue) were the two most frequent findings. FT affected 33% of psoriasis patients and 9.5% of controls, while BMG affected 14% of patients and only 6% of controls. Notably, the frequency of BMG increased with the severity of psoriasis in a sub-group of patients with plaque-type disease, as assessed by Psoriasis Area and Severity Index, Daneshpazhooh et al report in the journal BMC Dermatology. They conclude: "Overall, although oral lesions might not be considered authentic oral psoriasis unless proven histologically and with a parallel clinical course, nonspecific tongue lesions are significantly more frequent in psoriatic cases." The team recommends further studies to "evaluate the clinical significance of these seemingly nonspecific lesions in a suspected psoriatic case".

Conclusion 6/8/2014Prof G R Mohan Skin disease infrequently kills, But Often produces unhappiness, Usually loss of work and social Deprivation as well as considerable Physical discomfort. has proved to be correct in both cases. Concentration to treat comes out of a combination of confidence in system and hunger to learn is a fact.
