Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease. The immune system mistakenly activates a reaction in the skin cells, which speeds up the growth cycle of skin cells. Psoriasis symptoms are raised, red, inflamed lesions, silvery scaly plaques, dry skin that may crack and bleed, pitted nails or separation from the nail bed, small, red, individual spots and itching, burning or soreness of the skin.
Common triggers include stress, infections, an adidification of the body, hormonal disorders, skin lesions and injuries, bug bites, sunburns, environmental toxins, cold, smoking, alcohol, certain medications and a lack of fumaric acid.
There are several types of psoriasis, including psoriasis vulgaris, guttate psoriasis, inverse psoriasis, erythrodermic psoriasis and pustular psoriasis. Symptoms vary depending on the type of psoriasis the patient has. Plaque psoriasis, the most common form of psoriasis, causes itchy skin spots, red patches, and thick flaky lesions to form. Psoriasis can also affect the joints (psoriatic arthritis). Psoriasis is not contagious. A predisposition for psoriasis is inherited in genes.
