He was working in Dubai and suddenly the psoriasis flared up. Within a few weeks it was all over his body. He had to rush back to India.
This case is very exemplary, as it gives all the aspects of the triggers of psoriasis. When we study the evolution of psoriasis in this young man, we learn many things. Patient was a taxi driver in his native village near Goa. He lived with his parents and elder brother and grandparents. His father had retired. His mother was a home maker. His elder brother was married with two kids. They were facing financial difficulties as his elder brother had separated and the family was dependent on the patient's income. His father was a temperamental person. He was fault finding and critical in nature. Patient would have frequent conflicts with his father. His elder brother had also faced similar difficulties and hence had separated. To meet the financial obligations the patient had gone to Dubai for a job. His diet habits changed. He had to eat more of meat, beef and preserved food. The weather there was tough. He was into installing glass windows. So he had to constantly get exposed to the high temperatures and come back in the cool air conditioners. He faced a lot of discrimination there. Though he was a Muslim, he was treated inferiorly by South Indian Muslims, who were dominating. He had a deep vexation towards his boss who ill-treated him. He had quarreled with a native and had been threatened with dire consequences. Being away from home, he was missing his family.
