What is Psoriasis ?

Psoriasis is a chronic auto immune skin condition. The disease causes scaly, red patches on the skin that are noncontagious.

The human body grows new skin cells at the lowest skin layer which gradually move up to add to the uppermost layer through the layers underneath. This process takes about 28 days maximum and then the skin flakes die but in Psoriasis, the cycle takes between 2 to 6 days; resulting in faster skin cell development causing thick red crusty patches, which are then shed. The scales are followed by red streaky lines most commonly on the scalp, in the ears, elbows, knees, genitals and buttocks.

Psoriasis Type

Major Types of Psoriasis

Plaque Psoriasis (psoriasis vulgaris): Plaque psoriasis occurs as crusty, red and dry patches of overgrown skin on the uppermost skin layer with a silvery white background comprised of dead skin tissues. This psoriasis is apparent on the scalp, knees, elbows and lower back. They produce itchy and painful scars on the area which often crack and start bleeding.

Flexural (Inverse): Although psoriasis maybe white in color, dark red lesions are often spread across different body parts, inverse psoriasis has very red lesions spurring up behind body folds, such as behind the knee, under the arm or in the groin. These lesions are shiny and smooth to touch.
