What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a skin condition caused by faulty immune signals.

These signals trigger rapid skin cell growth, leading to raised, reddened skin patches with silvery scales.

Who is Affected?

Approximately 7.5 million Americans have psoriasis.

This non-contagious condition can lead to psoriatic arthritis and cardiovascular disease, affecting overall health and well-being.

Types of Psoriasis

There are five types of psoriasis,

with plaque psoriasis being the most common. It appears as raised, red patches with a silvery buildup of dead skin cells.
