    Is psoriasis contagious?
    No. Research studies have not shown it to be contagious from person to person. You cannot catch it from anyone, and you cannot pass it to anyone else by skin-to-skin contact. You can directly touch someone with psoriasis every day and never catch the skin condition.

    Can I pass psoriasis on to my children?

    Yes, it is possible. Although psoriasis is not contagious from person to person, there is a known genetic tendency, and it may be inherited from parents to their children. It does tend to run in some families, and a family history is helpful in making the diagnosis.

    Psoriasis is an obstinate skin condition in which red patches of various sizes develop on the skin that are covered with dry, silvery scales. The person with psoriasis has a parent or grandparent who also has the condition. In terms of probability it has been estimated that a person with one affected parent has about a 10% chance of also being affected. Having two parents with psoriasis increases the chances to about 30%.
    Researchers are studying large families affected by psoriasis to identify a gene or genes that cause the disease. (Genes govern every bodily function and determine the inherited traits passed from parent to child.) The psoriasis can be cured in its early stages. The best treatment option for psoriasis is homeopathic treatment.
