Everything You Need to Know About Psoriasis

September 26, 2017

Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune condition that causes the rapid build-up of skin cells. This build-up of cells causes scaling on the skin's surface. Inflammation and redness around the scales is fairly common. Typical psoriatic scales are whitish-silver and develop in thick, red patches. Psoriasis is the result of a sped-up skin production process. More than 7.5 million Americans have been diagnosed with psoriasis. Psoriasis may begin at any age, but most diagnoses occur in adulthood. The average age of onset is 33 years old. About 75% of psoriasis cases are diagnosed before age 46. A second peak period of diagnosis occurs in the late 50s and early 60s. https://www.healthline.com/health/psoriasis
