Cause Of Psoriasis

What causes someone to have psoriasis isn’t exactly known, but we do know that stress, genetics and your immune system play a role in a person’s tendency to develop psoriasis. There are several known common triggers that can set off psoriasis including:

Infection (such as Strep throat)

Infections like strep throat can exacerbate psoriasis through immune system activation and inflammation.


Smoking can exacerbate psoriasis by triggering inflammation, oxidative stress, and immune system dysregulation, contributing to the onset and worsening of symptoms.


Alcohol can exacerbate psoriasis by promoting inflammation, disrupting immune function, and dehydrating the body, potentially leading to increased severity of symptoms and flare-ups.

Psychological stress

Psychological stress can exacerbate psoriasis by inducing immune system dysregulation and inflammation, potentially triggering or worsening symptoms through the body's stress response pathways.
