Psoriasis is a long-term (chronic) skin condition /disease that causes skin cells to grow too quickly, resulting in thick, white, silvery, or red patches of skin. Normally, skin cells grow gradually and flake off about every 4 weeks. New skin cells grow to replace the outer layers of the skin as they shed. But in Psoriasis, new skin cells move rapidly to the surface of the skin in days rather than weeks. This forms thick patches that range in size from small to large. They most often appear on the knees, elbows, scalp, hands, feet, or lower back.
Psoriasis is most common in adults. But children and teens can get it too.
Psoriasis occurs when the immune system mistakes a normal skin cell for a pathogen and sends out a faulty signal that causes overproduction of new skin cells. The body is unable to shed the new skin cells fast enough and symptoms of psoriasis occur. People with psoriasis often notice times when their skin gets worse. Things that can cause these flare-ups include:
Psoriasis is not contagious and there is currently no ‘cure’, however there are both natural and non-natural treatments available to manage symptoms.
Red, scaly patches of skin that can be sore and/or itchy. At times symptoms may improve or disappear, and other times symptoms can worsen.
