What Triggers Psoriasis? – Learn How to Prevent 
Flare Ups! 
There are quite a few different things that can ​trigger psoriasis​. When 
you’re done reading this article you’ll have a good idea what they are 
and ​how to prevent flare-ups​. 
What leads to flare-ups of psoriasis symptoms? 
According to several scientific studies, close to 10% of the population 
has one of the genetic markers that can lead to psoriasis. Fortunately, 
only 2-3% of the population actually ends up having symptoms​. 
For those of us that fall into that 2-3%, it helps to know what can cause 
flare-ups so we can minimize the symptoms that we need to deal with. 
Weather 
Cold weather can dry out the skin and cause psoriasis symptoms to act 
up. Keeping your skin moisturized with a high-quality topical cream, 
like ​Revitol Dermasis Psoriasis Cream​, is a great way to keep ​prevent 
symptoms from popping up in cold weather​.

You can try to use a humidifier in your house to help keep the air moist 
and avoid some of the drying effects of the cold weather. 
Warm, sunny weather actually has been shown to keep psoriasis 
symptoms at bay. 
Stress 
Stress is one of the most common causes of psoriasis flare-ups. 
Learning relaxation techniques can help immensely when trying to 
treat stress in your daily life and help prevent flare-ups.

I really like incorporating about 30 mins of ​yoga as a way to relieve 
stress​ in my life. ​I find it very helpful to prevent my flare-ups. 
Trauma to the Skin 
Most people normally avoid trauma to the skin anyway, but this is a 
leading psoriasis trigger for some people. This is known as the ​Koebner 
phenomenon​. 
Bumps, bruises, cuts, scrapes, burns, vaccinations, and tattoos are all 
things that lead to a flare up for some people. ​Avoiding contact sports 
and other activities that have a high chance of causing skin trauma is a 
good idea. 
Tattoos are especially likely to cause flare-ups. Injecting ink into the 
skin and repeatedly piercing it with a needle is obviously going to cause 
trauma. Many people experience a flare-up within 2 weeks of getting a 
new tattoo. 
Infection 
Like trauma, we all typically try to avoid infections. When we’re not 
lucky enough to be able to avoid them, they can lead to a psoriasis

flare-up. ​Strep throat, yeast infections, thrush, staph infections and 
respiratory infections​ are all known to trigger psoriasis symptoms. 
With psoriasis, your immune system is already compromised and 
fighting an inflammatory disease. Adding other infections in the mix 
can easily put it over the edge. 
Medications 
Certain drugs can also cause psoriasis symptoms to trigger. 
Medications that treat heart disease, mental issues, high blood pressure 
and arthritis can all trigger your psoriasis. 
Reactions from medication aren’t only limited to those. ​Malaria meds, 
NSAIDs, steroids like prednisone, beta-blockers and ACE inhibitors​ can 
also cause flare-ups.

Make sure you talk to your doctor if you think there’s a connection 
between your psoriasis symptoms and the medication that you’re 
taking. They may be able to prescribe something else that will not lead 
to any negative side effects. 
Never stop taking a prescription without consulting your doctor first! 
Alcohol 
This is something that all of us can control. ​Avoiding alcohol has been 
shown to limit the number of flare-ups​ that people experience.

Alcohol also affects the liver and doesn’t mix well with many 
prescription psoriasis medications. 
There has been ​a close correlation shown between flare-ups and beer 
drinking​, ​especially in women.  
Smoking 
Smoking is another activity that’s totally avoidable and is known to lead 
to worsening of psoriasis symptoms.

Smokers are more likely to have flare-ups, especially on the hands and 
feet. After I quit smoking, ​I noticed that the psoriasis on my hand got 
much better when I quit smoking! 
Hormones 
Doctors believe that hormones play a part in when psoriasis first shows 
up.

Psoriasis can start at any age but times, when hormone levels are 
extreme, seem to be when they first show up. Puberty and menopause 
are common times for psoriasis to first show up. 
Those between the ages of ​20 and 30​ and those between ​50 and 60​ are 
also at risk. 
Food Related Triggers 
I’ve covered this in other articles. Pretty much everything that tastes 
the best can lead to psoriasis triggers. Luckily a lot of us don’t react to 
food or only react to certain foods. 
If you see a connection between certain foods and your flare-ups then 
you should try to avoid those foods. 
Common foods are ​peppers, citrus, dairy products, fatty red meats, 
and gluten​. 
Too Much Sun

Short periods of sunlight have been shown to reduce psoriasis triggers. 
Sunburn, however, has the exact opposite reaction. 
Up to ​about 20 minutes a day of sun can limit your flare-ups​, but ​make 
sure you’re not burning​! If you do it’s almost guaranteed to make your 
symptoms worse. 
Obesity 
Doctors don’t all agree why obesity has been shown to increase 
flare-ups. There have been studies that show ​a low-calorie diet 
decreases the severity of symptoms​. 
Some doctors believe that obesity is more of a side effect of not doing 
things that help with psoriasis (exercise, diet, etc.) rather than the 
obesity itself being a cause. 
Conclusion 
Many psoriasis triggers are avoidable. Some simple lifestyle changes 
can go a long way toward preventing future flare-ups.
