Your skin cells are constantly renewing themselves. New cells are growing while old cells die and are shed off from the surface of the skin. Psoriasis is a chronic condition that is the result of skin cells growing too quickly causing a build-up of excess skin cells on the surface of the skin to form thick silvery patches. These patches of dry, flaky skin are called plaques.
This abnormal proliferation of skin cells can be found anywhere on the body but in mild cases, it is more commonly found on the knees, elbows and the scalp. Sometimes the condition is barely noticeable and is often dismissed.. In severe cases, the condition can spread over very large regions of the body or in some cases, the entire body is covered with thick, layers of flaky skin.
It is not known what causes Psoriasis but despite its unsightly appearance, it is not contagious. There is no known cure for psoriasis but it can be controlled with certain medications or topical lotions and crèmes.
Psoriasis can affect anyone of any age, gender or race.
