Psoriasis is a disease with an unclear cause that is characterized by inflammation caused by the dysfunction of the immune system that causes inflammation to the body. When the immune system speeds up skin cell growth, psoriasis skin falls off within 3-4 days whereas regular skin would take a month to fall off. Some psoriasis can leave you with an itch, burn, or sting & it can be commonly found on elbows and knees as well as the scalp area. You are also more prone to getting other conditions like psoriatic arthritis, cardiovascular problems, obesity, high blood pressure, or diabetes.
