What exactly is psoriasis?

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that produces a rapid buildup of skin cells. This cell build up creates scaling on the skin's surface. Psoriatic scales are often whitish-silver and appear in dense, red patches. These patches will occasionally crack and bleed. 

Psoriasis normally appears between the ages of 15 and 35; however, it can arise at any age. Many people have a genetic susceptibility to psoriasis, but it does not always manifest.
