Skin cells build up and form scales and itchy, dry patches

Psoriasis is a common and recurring condition in which the skin develops red patches of various sizes, covered with dry, silvery scales. Most often, it affects the scalp, the trunk of the body and the outer side of the arms and legs, especially the elbows and knees. The palms and soles may also be involved. Fortunately the face is usually spared. It is usually a lifelong problem. There is no cure currently, but recent therapeutic advances have given new hope to patients who suffer from this disease.


 Psoriasis currently affects roughly 7-8 million people in the U.S.

Psoriasis may vary in appearance. It often appears as small scaly bumps that coalesce into plaques of raised skin.

Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition. Any approach to the treatment of this disease must be considered for the long term.
