Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune skin disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. It is characterized by the rapid buildup of skin cells, leading to the formation of thick, red, and scaly patches on the skin’s surface. These patches can be itchy, painful, and may crack, bleed, or cause discomfort. It is believed to be a result of genetic factors combined with an overactive immune response. Triggers such as stress, infections, certain medications, and environmental factors can exacerbate the condition.
