Guttate Psoriasis

Guttate Psoriasis is a form of psoriasis which commonly starts in childhood or in young adults. It appears in the form of small red spots, which are usually less thick and crusty than those found with plaque psoriasis. The spots usually appear on the main torso and limbs.

Guttate psoriasis can come on suddenly, especially if other infections are present. Often associated with strep throat, guttate psoriasis can be an indication of an underlying infection. Anti-malarial drugs and beta-blockers have also been found to trigger an attack. 

Guttate psoriasis has been known to disappear on its own, but reappearance is common, and will often take the form of plaque psoriasis. In a small amount of cases, however a person may be left free from any further outbreaks. 

Treatment usually takes the form of moisturisers or gels, and in severe cases topical medications may be applied. Phototherapy treatment is very effective for this condition. Biologic medications are also effective in treating this form of psoriasis. 

In extreme cases a doctor may prescribe a systemic medication.

 

The Katharine Botanicals Psoriasis range has been specially formulated to help with the symptoms of psoriasis.  It is very gentle in action and contains a particularly high proportion of natural active ingredients.

  • World Psoriasis Day: Take Part with a Testimonial

    Follow my blog with Bloglovin

    World Psoriasis Day takes place on the 29th of October each year and serves as a podium for people to experience psoriasis to offer their accounts of living with the condition. Though one of the first skin diseases to be recognised psoriasis continues to be misunderstood and those that experience it discover large amounts of misinformation available. World Psoriasis Day is attempting to combat this confusion by encouraging those who experience psoriasis to post pictures of themselves with testimonials.

  • Hug a Vegan This September

    Many consider a vegan lifestyle to be very rewarding and it's certainly easier on our environment. Whether you're aiming to eat nothing that comes from an animal or ensure that you're not using products that use animal products or participate in animal testing, these are all elements that reduce cruelty and pollution. Recent studies have shown that methane from livestock accounts for more greenhouse gasses in the UK than our roads and trains combined! And animal testing accounts for thousands of animals that are forced to endure discomfort for human cosmetic needs. This is why Katharine Botanicals offers a wide range of products that are entirely vegan.

    As the internet makes it easier for conscientious shoppers to make ethical choices, it's also easier than ever to discover the benefits of making these choices when you purchase. In fact, PETA recently held a celebration just for vegans called "hug a vegan day". Last year it was all about vegetarians and now vegans are getting the love from PETA! The official hug a vegan day was held last Friday on the 27th of September but we feel that there is all the time in the world to show your appreciation for all the good things nature has to offer.

  • Ethically Aware Consumers Demand More From Their Cosmetics

    A recent report from The Soil Association shows that a more ethically aware group of shoppers are taking their business online to ensure that they're purchasing products with the transparency they crave. This is both regarding organic food and other products, including cosmetics.

    In fact, the organic cosmetic industry grew by 5.6% last year and now stands at a value of £31.8m.

  • Sunlight and Benefits to Psoraisis

    Whilst the recent weather has been somewhat unpredictable, we can also say that this has been one of the brightest summers that the UK has enjoyed for some time. This is an excellent opportunity for suffers of psoriasis to enjoy sunlight and the vitamin D that comes with it. Vitamin D and ultra violet light are both completely natural elements that can help to soothe skin suffering from psoriasis. Ultra violet light is already used as a medical treatment by many doctors, where synthesised UVB rays are created with sun lamps. Injections are also utilised to encourage the skin to soak up even more of the beneficial UV light but I’m sure most would rather a natural course of sunbathing. This bright sunshine gives many who live with psoriasis the chance to enjoy a free and completely natural course of UV light and all the benefits that come with it.
