What is psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a disease characterized by red scaly plaques that result from over-proliferation and inflammation due to an intense immunological dysfunction in the skin. Not only does the skin have red scaly lesions, but often there are symptoms of itching, burning, discomfort and depression.

Conditions related to psoriasis

Psoriasis is associated with arthritis in a considerable number of patients. If untreated, this can be deforming and disabling. Recent data suggest that cardiac disease, diabetes, and gout can be a side effect of this generalized inflammatory process and often occurs as part of a systemic metabolic syndrome.
