Psoriasis is a very common skin disorder that affects the life cycle of epidermal cells. Psoriasis causes the cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin and desquamation does not occur, leaving lesions that are thick silvery scales and itchy, dry, red patches and occasionally painful. Psoriasis is a chronic disease with no cure. There are usually alternating period of exacerbation and remission.
