Skin Psoriasis Treatment

Psoriasis is a common and chronic skin disorder. Most persons with psoriasis have thick, red skin with flaky, silver-white patches called scales. The redness is most often seen on the elbows, knees, and trunk, but can appear anywhere on the body. For example, there may be flaky patches on the scalp.

Psoriasis is a condition that can be controlled with treatment. It may go away for a long time and then return. With appropriate treatment, it usually does not affect your general physical health.

Psoriasis is not contagious.
