What is Psoriasis ?

Psoriasis is a long-term (chronic) skin problem that causes skin cells to grow too quickly, resulting in thick, white, silvery, or red patches of skin. Normally, skin cells grow gradually and flake off about every 4 weeks. New skin cells grow to replace the outer layers of the skin as they shed.

But in psoriasis new skin cells move rapidly to the surface of the skin in days rather than weeks. They then build up and form thick patches called plaques. The patches range in size from small to large. They often appear on the knees, elbows, scalp, hands, feet or lower back.

People with psoriasis often notice times when their skin gets worse. Things that can cause these flare-ups include a cold and dry climate, infections, stress, dry skin, and taking certain medicines. Psoriasis isn't contagious. It can't be spread by touch from person to person. In some cases it may run in the family.

Currently there is no cure for psoriasis. But many types of treatment are available, including products applied to the skin, phototherapy, and oral medicines, which can help control psoriasis. Most cases are mild and can be treated with skin products. In some cases, psoriasis can be hard to treat if it is severe and widespread. Most psoriasis returns, even mild forms.

The purpose of treatment is to slow, the rapid growth of skin cells that causes psoriasis and to reduce inflammation. Treatment is based on the type of psoriasis you have, its location, its severity, and your age and overall health. People respond differently to psoriasis treatments. A treatment that worked one time may not work again.

A treatment that didn't work the first time may work when tried again later. You may need to try different treatments before you find one that works well for you. It's important to discuss your treatment and progress with your doctor.
