According to Mayo Clinic, psoriasis is a common chronic disease that “causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin. The extra skin cells form scales and red patches that are itchy and sometimes painful.”
There is no cure for it, however, there are multiple treatments that can help manage psoriasis.
