About Psoriasis

Psoriasis is not contagious. Typically, new skin cells form over several weeks. In psoriasis, new cells are made too quickly and build up into raised pink plaques with silver-white scales on our skin.

Signs and Symptoms

Psoriasis is a chronic, autoimmune disease that appears on the skin. It occurs when the immune system sends out faulty signals that speed up the growth cycle of the skin cells.

  • Typically affects the outside of the elbows, knees or scalp, though it can appear on any location.
  • Some people report that psoriasis is itchy, burns and stings.
  • Psoriasis is associated with other serious health conditions.
