Polysorb in psoriasis

Psoriasis (scaly lichen) is a chronic dermatological pathology of noninfectious genesis. It is characterized by the appearance of patches typical for this disease, towering above the surface of the skin, peeling pink-red. The reasons for which pathology occurs are still not found. There are scientific hypotheses about the nature of genesis: autoimmune, genetic, endocrine, metabolic, violation of normal neurohumoral reactions, due to stress. The appearance of the first manifestations of scaly lichens occurs at the age of 15-30 years. There are many scientifically developed classifications of psoriasis.

Typical rashes are combined into groups to localize the manifestations on the skin, the degree of prevalence, the severity of the general condition of the patient, the specific features of the rashes and their pathological properties. The provoking factors are: stressful states of the immune system, a psychogenic cause of pathology and heredity. The most common symptoms of psoriatic manifestations are: the appearance of the depolarized dense papules prone to fusion and covered with whitish or grayish readily removable scales. Psoriasis spots rise above the surface of the skin, causing itching and scratching. With minor injuries on the surface of the rashes appears "bloody dew". The most typical spread of localizations of psoriatic manifestations is the skin on the extensor surfaces of large joints, the scalp, parts of the body subjected to friction.

The course of systemic disease is undulating with remissions, during which complete disposal of the characteristic dermatological manifestations does not occur. It is impossible to completely cure squamous lichen, but to reduce and alleviate its manifestations is one of the goals of modern medicine. Given the mechanism of the appearance of psoriatic manifestations, the body accumulates a sufficiently large number of toxins. Their removal plays an important role in reducing the manifestations of psoriasis.

Indications Polysorb in psoriasis

Treatment of psoriasis, which refers to dermatoses, is complicated by the lack of balance between the accumulation and excretion of toxic substances from the body. Skin is a complex multifunctional system. Any toxic effects, both internal and external, can lead to pathological changes in it. In order to detoxify the body, the Polysorb preparation is used.

  • severe intoxication in purulent-septic contingencies;
  • acute poisoning with chemicals;
  • chronic or acute sensitization (various types of allergic reactions);
