About Psoriasis

Back to the top

Psoriasis is a common, often chronic, skin condition that causes red, scaly, and itchy patches on various parts of the body. The elbows, knees, scalp, feet, lower back, and genitals are the most common areas affected by psoriasis. These patches of inflamed skin are called plaques.

Psoriasis is caused by an overreactive immune system that generates new skin cells at rapid rates. When these skin cells are produced quickly, they begin to build up on the surface of the skin. This leads to the patchy, scaly skin symptomatic of psoriasis.

Psoriasis is not contagious, although it can be passed down through genetics. Symptoms usually begin to appear between the ages of 15 and 25. In some cases, the symptoms of psoriasis are brought on by a trigger that causes an outbreak. Common triggers for a psoriasis outbreak include:

  • Injury to the skin (cuts, scrapes, bug bites, or sunburn)
  • Infection (such as strep throat, bronchitis, or skin infections)
  • Stress
  • Cold, dry weather
  • Alcohol consumption
  • Medications (such as lithium and beta-blockers)
  • Food allergies

According to Psoriasis.org, psoriasis affects nearly 7.5 million American adults every year (3% of the population). If you have psoriasis, you may be at greater risk of developing other health conditions. Inflammation from psoriasis can lead to a form of arthritis known as psoriatic arthritis, which can cause joint pain and stiffness. Talk to your doctor if you are experiencing an itchy, persistent, and scaly rash, as this is the most common symptom of psoriasis.
