What really is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a common, persistent skin disorder, characterized by patches of raised, red bumps covered with white, flaking scales. Normally, new skin cells are constantly produced in the deepest layer of the skin that typically takes about 28 days. However, in areas affected by psoriasis, new cells only take 3-4 days to reach the skin’s surface, and the accumulation of excess cells causes the characteristic scaly plaques.

    The most common form of the disease. It appears as raised; red patches covered with a silvery-white buildup of dead skin cells. They often show up on the scalp, knees, elbows, and lower back. They are often itchy and painful and may crack and bleed if not cured properly.
  2. Guttate
    It is a form of psoriasis that appears as small, dot-like lesions. They often start in childhood and young adulthood and can be triggered by a strep infection.
