Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a long-lasting autoimmune disease characterized by patches of abnormal skin which are typically red, itchy, and scaly. There are five main types of psoriasis: plaque, guttate, inverse, pustular, and erythrodermic, whereas plaque psoriasis, also known as psoriasis vulgaris. Psoriasis is generally thought to be a genetic disease that is mainly caused by environmental factors. Plaque psoriasis typically appears as raised areas of inflamed skin covered with silvery-white scaly skin. These areas are called plaques and are most commonly found on the elbows, knees, scalp, and back. Psoriasis is characterized by an abnormally excessive and rapid growth of the epidermal layer of the skin. Abnormal production of skin cells and an overabundance of skin cells result from the sequence of pathological events in psoriasis. Psoriasis is generally thought to be a genetic disease that is triggered by environmental factors. There is no cure for psoriasis however various treatments can help control the symptoms. These treatments include steroid creams, vitamin D3 cream, ultraviolet light and immune system suppressing medications, such as methotrexate.
