Psoriasis is a persistent skin disorder in which a person usually has patches of raised skin with red flakes and thick silvery scales. The affected skin normally has red or scaly abscissions but this totally depends on the type of psoriasis the patient is suffering from. It is a kind of medical condition that occurs when skin cells grow quickly.

Defective signals in the immune system grounds new skin cells to form in days rather than weeks. The body does not shed these excess skin cells, so the cells pile up on the surface of the skin to form lesions.

Detailed research on the disease has shown that this skin disorder is normally found on the arms, legs, trunk, nails, or scalp, but not necessarily the same every time. It may be found on any part of the skin however; most commonly affected areas are the knees and elbows. This skin disorder is chronic but not contagious. It can however be caused due to the hereditary factors. (For details on causes please refer to the sections “what causes psoriasis?”)
