Psoriasis causes the formation of red, thick, scaly patches on the skin. It is a chronic disease of the skin that can be associated with manifestations in other organs. It can cause changes in the nails and pain and swelling in the joints.
It can occur at any age, but mostly between 15 to 30 years. Two percent of adults in the United States suffer from this problem.
It is caused by genetic factors, mental stress, and some environmental factors. HIV infection worsens this problem.
It can be treated with corticosteroids, vitamin D analogs, tazarotene, healthy lifestyles, and exposure to the sun’s rays. Severe psoriasis is treated with phototherapy, systemic therapy or biologic therapy.
