Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that is characterized by red areas of inflammation. There is thickening, scaling and flaking of the skin.
Psoriasis may be the result of your body’s inability to properly shed its skin. But did you know that non-psoriatic skin cells mature and shed every 28 days. Psoriatic skin cells move out to the surface of the body over a period of 3 to 6 days. This causes a rapid build up of unshed skin cells that results in the formation of legions.
Psoriasis can develop on any part of your body and is thought to be a hereditary disease. However, psoriasis can be triggered by emotional stress, injury to the skin, different types of infections, or even reactions to drugs.
