Psoriasis

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune condition that causes rapid skin cell turnover, leading to thick, red, scaly patches. These plaques typically appear on elbows, knees, scalp, and lower back. While the exact cause remains unknown, it's thought to involve a combination of genetics and the immune system. Triggers like stress, infections, and certain medications can exacerbate symptoms. Although there's no cure for psoriasis, various treatment options exist, including topical medications, light therapy, and oral/injectable medications, which can help control flare-ups and improve quality of life for individuals living with this condition.
