5 most prescribed drugs for Psoriasis

What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a long-lasting common autoimmune skin condition characterized by skin cells that multiply up to 10 times faster than normal, turning the skin into red and white patchy scales. Psoriasis occurs on the elbows, knees, scalp, torso, palms, and soles of the feet.

What Causes Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is caused when a person’s immune system sends faulty signals that tell skin cells to grow too quickly. New skin cells form in days rather than weeks. The body does not shed these excess skin cells. The skin cells pile up on the surface of the skin, causing psoriasis to appear.

Symptoms of Psoriasis

  • Red and white scales on the skin
  • Itchy and burning skin
  • Swollen and stiff joints
  • Dry, cracked skin
