It turns out that there are 20,000 people suffering from psoriasis😩
The correct scientific name for psoriasis is “psoriasis”. The incidence of psoriasis in Hong Kong is about 0.3%. According to medical research, the cause of psoriasis is related to genetic inheritance and environmental factors. Patients with psoriasis have a bright red or dark red rash with multiple layers of silvery white or grayish-brown scales covering the affected area, which appears rough and dry at first glance.
This time, RTHK invited Dr. Steven Loo (Loo King Fan), a dermatologist, to share with us the causes of psoriasis and what patients should pay attention to. Dr. Loo pointed out that apart from the genetic factors of psoriasis, the imbalance of intestinal bacteria is also one of the causes of psoriasis.
