Psoriasis is a non-contagious autoimmune disease affecting roughly 3% of the world’s population. It is a chronic, reoccurring disease that affects the skin and joints, appearing as irregular red, dry, scaly patches on the skin. These patches or “plaques” are caused by excessive skin production. Rapidly accumulating skin eventually takes on a whitish appearance. Most often psoriasis is found on knees and elbows, but can affect many areas, ranging from small patches to large sections of the body (and in its most severe form the entire body).
The exact cause of psoriasis has yet to be found, however researchers know genetics play a key role in its development. Factors that can worsen psoriasis include stress, climate change, and smoking and excessive alcohol consumption.
Psoriasis can be controlled; however as of now there is no complete cure.
