Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune skin condition that causes rapid skin cell growth, resulting in the formation of thick, red, scaly patches on the skin. It can be both physically uncomfortable and emotionally distressing for those affected. At Island Dermatology LLC, our team of experienced skin professionals is dedicated to providing comprehensive care and personalized treatment plans to help you manage psoriasis and improve your quality of life.
Psoriasis occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy skin cells, causing an accelerated growth cycle. This leads to a buildup of cells on the skin's surface, forming plaques that can be itchy, painful, and sometimes bleed. Psoriasis can affect any part of the body but is commonly found on the scalp, knees, elbows, and lower back.
There are several types of psoriasis, including plaque, guttate, inverse, pustular, and erythrodermic. The severity of the condition varies from person to person, and triggers can include stress, infections, certain medications, and skin injury.
