Was I Born This Way? Psoriasis and Your Genes

What are the causes of psoriasis? Is it in your genes?

Unfortunately, no one knows for sure. Scientists are still exploring what causes psoriasis and if it is hereditary. According to the National Psoriasis Foundation, 25 genetic variants that many believe are linked to one’s propensity for developing psoriasis or passing it on to their children have been identified. Scientists are confident that the skin condition is not contagious. But, that’s where the story ends, for now.

No one knows what the cause is. Unfortunately, today there is no cure. But, at MetaDerm, we believe that living with psoriasis doesn’t have to define your life. That’s why we’re dedicated to helping people with chronic skin conditions achieve healthier more normal skin through the clinically-proven MetaDerm. Our treatments are steroid-free, fragrance-free, and hypoallergenic. They contain active botanicals that are safe to use every day alone or with other treatments to help relieve flares and keep them from coming back.

By providing convenient effective treatment that’s delivered to your door, without the trade-offs or possible side effects of some pharmaceutical and over-the-counter approaches, we’re hoping to help people living with psoriasis create a lifetime of more normal, flare-free skin.
