What is  Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a skin disease that causes skin cells to grow 10 times faster than average. This allows the skin to build up into bumpy red patches covered in white scales. They can develop anywhere, but most of them occur on the scalp, elbows, knees, and lower back. Psoriasis cannot be transmitted from person to person. It occurs often in members of the same family.

Psoriasis typically occurs in early adulthood. It impacts only a few places and most people. Psoriasis can cover large areas of the body in extreme cases. Patches will recover and then come back all the way through a person’s life.
