Psoriasis belongs to hereditary diseases. The risk of developing it in child age is about 8-30% for one sick parent; if both parents have psoriasis, the probability for the child is up to 75%. The first manifestations are more frequent after teenage. Before 16 years it starts in 25-45% of cases, in 10% it starts before 10 years and in 2% before 2 years. Congenital psoriasis is very rare. In small children, psoriasis usually begins after an infectious disease caused most often by streptococcus (angina). Therefore, it’s sometimes mixed up with the response to the antibiotics used to treat the infection. Psoriasis is a rash in the form of dozens to hundreds of red tiny spots or pimples with dandruffs on the surface.
Some tips for parents of psoriatic patients:
Bathing: Forget classic soap, use clean water or mild washing gels, preferably on natural basis. Wash the skin gently with cotton swabs, never rub the skin.
Hydration: The skin also needs water in the form of creams or balms. Consult a physician for a suitable skin care product.
Calmness: The condition of the psoriatic skin changes depending on the psychological well-being. Especially in the winter, when the problems get worse, slow down and look for calmer activities.
Dressing: Synthetic fabrics have no place in the psoriatic wardrobe. Replace it with cotton, bamboo or hemp.
