Symptoms, remedies, treatments and care for Psoriasis
Psoriasis is a noncontagious, long-lasting autoimmune disease which is characterized by patches of abnormal skin. It causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin. The extra skin cells form scales and red patches that are itchy and sometimes painful. It is a chronic disease that often comes and goes.
Common signs and symptoms include red patches of skin covered with thick scales, dry and cracked skin that may bleed, itching, burning or soreness, thickened, pitted or ridged nails, wollen and stiff joints.
