Psoriasis is a chronic, inflammatory and noncontagious skin condition that produces plaques of thickened, scaling skin. The dry flakes of skin scales result from the excessively rapid proliferation of skin cells.
• The proliferation of skin cells is triggered by inflammatory chemicals produced by specialized white blood cells called lymphocytes. Psoriasis commonly affects the skin of the elbows, knees, and scalp.
• Psoriasis is an auto immune disorder
• Psoriasis affects all races and both sexes,more in adult age groups.

There are several different forms of psoriasis, including
psoriasis vulgaris (common plaque type),
guttate psoriasis (small, drop-like spots),
inverse psoriasis (in the folds like of the underarms, navel, groin, and buttocks),
