Psoriasis is an immune-mediated disease that affects the skin. It is typically a lifelong condition. There is currently
no cure, but various treatments can help to control the symptoms. Psoriasis occurs when the immune system
mistakes a normal skin cell for a pathogen and sends out faulty signals that cause overproduction of new skin cells. It is not contagious. Psoriasis has been linked to an increased
risk of stroke, and treating high blood lipid levels may lead to improvement. There are five
types of psoriasis: plaque, guttate, inverse, pustular, and
The most common form, plaque psoriasis,
is commonly seen as red and white hues of scaly patches
appearing on the top first layer of the epidermis (skin). In plaque psoriasis, skin
rapidly accumulates at these sites, which gives it a silvery-white appearance. Plaques
frequently occur on the skin of the elbows and knees, but can affect any area, including the scalp, palms of hands, and soles of feet. In contrast to eczema, psoriasis is more likely
to be found on the outer side of the joint. There are many treatments available, but because of
its chronic recurrent nature, psoriasis is a challenge to treat. Patient feedback has indicated
