Question (Posted on :  09 Dec 2009 )


Thanks. Can increased nutrients water to skin cells cause increased skin turnover in general case ( may not be in psoriasis)? Otherway, can decreased nutrients water cause early death shedding of skin cells? Sorry but till etiology is unknown, we can try checking all possibilities.

Yes but as said earlier there are various other factors also which play a role in skin cell death .There can be mutations and increased apoptosis as well.
