What is psoriasis?
Psoriasis is not just a skin disease
Psoriasis is not just dry flaky "scales" on the skin; individuals who suffer from psoriasis are afraid of rejection or lack of personal and family life, of having a hard time finding a job, and of psoriasis-related complications that can ultimately lead to disability. Patients with psoriasis can be faced with widespread intolerance; their quality of life is drastically reduced because of the symptoms of psoriasis.
Psoriasis is a serious non-contagious chronic inflammatory condition of the skin.
Although the underlying mechanism of developing psoriasis is not fully understood, this condition is known to be genetically determined and associated with immune system disorders.
