what is psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a skin condition resulting in burning or itchy red patches that are covered in white scales caused by an excessive buildup of skin cells. The stages of psoriasis can come and go in periods of flaring and recession. Its severity can vary from person to person and there is no cure. However, treatments for the condition can be effective in reducing the amount of redness and scaling. There are many things that can affect the condition, such as weather, soaps, or makeup.
