Psoriasis is a skin disease that can attack any part of the body with itchy, red blotches. Psoriasis occurs when skin cells multiply at a rate 10 times faster than the normal rate. Although it can cover any part of the body the most common sights for psoriasis are on the knees, elbows, and scalp.
Signs & Symptoms:
Symptoms of psoriasis include red patches on the skin covered with silvery scales, small scaling spots, dry and cracked skin that may bleed, itching, burning, and soreness of the skin. Psoriasis affects each person differently and can range from minor dry patches to severe rash like conditions that cover large parts of the body.
When dealing with psoriasis it’s important to always apply your topicals in order to help with itching and inflammation. As a result, this will help with the overall appearance of the skin and help return skin cell production closer to normal growth. Taking a daily warm bath can help to keep your skin moist and reduce dryness.
