AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE SPOTLIGHT

Psoriasis

Psoriasis affects 125 million people around the world! It is caused by an overactive immune system which speeds up the life cycle of the cells and create scales or red patches. "Researchers believe that for a person to develop psoriasis, that person must have a combination of the genes that cause psoriasis and be exposed to specific external factors known as triggers"(Psoriasis.org).

Your patches will look different depending on what type of psoriasis you have. There are several difference types of psoriasis. The five most popular types of psoriasis are plaque, guttate, inverse, pustular, and erythrodermic. It is important to note that psoriasis is not contagious. A flare can last for a few weeks to month.
