Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a skin disorder involving thick, red areas with silvery scales, usually affecting the elbows, knees and lower back. The exact cause of the disorder is unknown, but studies point to an abnormal functioning of t-cells which cause inflammation and an immune response wherein the skin begins growing too rapidly.

Treatments for the disorder come in many forms, but usually involve one of three forms including topical solution, oral medication, UV light treatment, or a combination. The main goal is to reduce inflammation and to control shedding of the skin, and may require several visits to a dermatologist.
