Psoriasis is a long lasting chronic skin disease. It is more common in
females than males. It affects up to 2-4% of our population. You can't
get psoriasis from coming in contact with a person who has it. It is
normally passed down through genetics or you can develop it roughly
between the ages of 15-35. Psoriasis can spread anywhere between 2% up
to 80% of your body.
Many people mistake dry skin for psoriasis because they both are dried,
cracked skin that may bleed. Psoriasis goes through cycles in the body
where sometimes they flare up and sometimes there mild. Psoriasis are
made up of many blood cells also known as, T-cells, developing at once.
T-cells are in your body to attack infections or viruses in your body.
By having too many cells now fights everything off and goes after the
healthy part of the body which makes the slivery scaly patches.
