A significant role in the development of psoriasis is given to disorders of the central nervous and endocrine systems.

Insufficient knowledge of the exact cause of the disease, as well as the factors causing its exacerbation, and explains the difficulties that have to be encountered in the treatment of psoriasis.

Scientists and clinicians have come to the conclusion that not in all cases when a diagnosis of psoriasis is made, active treatment should be immediately carried out. Continue reading
