What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune disease with no cure. Psoriasis is not contagious and affects the entire body, not just the skin. What you see on the skin is actually a result of an overactive immune system. If left untreated psoriasis can spiral into many other chronic diseases.

The most common symptoms of psoriasis include inflammation, skin redness, itchiness and scaly skin that can crack and bleed.

Types of Psoriasis

There are officially 5 types of psoriasis:

1. Plaque Psoriasis 

2. Guttate Psoriasis

3. Inverse Psoriasis

4. Pustular Psoriasis

5. Erythodermic Psoriasis

These symptoms can develop anywhere on the body including hands, feet, neck, scalp and face.
