Psoriasis is a multifactorial, Autoimmune, chronic, relapsing, inflammatory skin disease affecting 1-2% of general population. Effective therapeutic agents (e.g. - PUVA) for the treatment of Psoriasis in contemporary medicine may have long-term toxic side effects like Melanoma (Skin CA), Nausea, Hepatotoxicity, etc. which makes Ayurvedic medications a good choice because it overcomes the said limitations.
