  1. It is thought that the stimulus of streptococcal infection strep throat may initiate or exacerbate psoriasis.
    Heredity factor, abnormality in the metabolism of amino acids and proteins,
    seasonal changes, injury to the skin and skin infections are some
    of the causes of psoriasis. Reducing stress levels, too, is important;
