Psoriasis

Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin condition that manifests most commonly as red plaques covered with silvery scale. Skin cells usually regenerate every 26 to 30 days. For patients with psoriasis, this process is accelerated, and the skin regenerates every 3 to 4 days. Because the dead skin cells cannot be shed fast enough, they pile up on the surface of the skin, forming scales. The most commonly affected areas are the elbows, knees, scalp, torso, nails, genitals, palms and soles. This condition, which is not contagious, is more prevalent in Caucasians, and affects men and women equally.
