Abstract

Psoriasis is a chronic disorder with erythematous scaly patches, which typically affects the exposed surfaces of the body and scalp. Various factors such as bacterial infection, genetic and environmental factors, and immune disorders play an important role in causing psoriasis. Different types of psoriasis can be observed, such as guttate psoriasis, inverse psoriasis, pustular psoriasis, and psoriatic arthritis. Various ancient, topical, and systemic approaches have been used to control the disease, but have failed to achieve a complete reduction of the disease, besides causing toxic effects. Therefore, our main aim in this review article is to introduce the different advanced nanotechnological approaches for effective treatment of psoriasis.
