What is psoriasis?

Psoriasis causes the body to produce too many skin cells, skin cells are normally made and replaced every 3 to 4 weeks, but in psoriasis, this process only takes about 3 to 7 days. These skin cells then build up to form thick, crusted scales that can feel itchy and sore.

What are the symptoms of psoriasis?

Psoriasis can affect people of all ages and genders equally. The symptoms of psoriasis include:


  • Red, raised, inflamed patches of skin

  • White-silvery scales on the red patches

  • Dry skin that may crack and bleed

  • Itchy, sore or burning sensation around patches
