What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin condition that involves red elevated patches and flaking silvery scales. Psoriasis can be painful and itchy with dry, flaky, inflamed skin. It is most commonly found on the elbows, knees, scalp, chest, and lower back. It is thought to be caused by a malfunctioning immune system where white blood cells are triggered, causing inflammation and skin cells to shed at an abnormally quick rate.
