Psoriasis

Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune condition that affects the skin, characterized by the rapid growth of skin cells leading to the formation of thick, red, and scaly patches. This condition stems from an overactive immune system triggering inflammation, which accelerates the skin cell turnover process. Psoriasis can manifest in various forms, such as plaque psoriasis (the most common type), guttate psoriasis, inverse psoriasis, pustular psoriasis, and erythrodermic psoriasis, each presenting distinct symptoms and patterns.

While the exact cause of psoriasis remains unclear, genetic predisposition, environmental factors, and immune system dysfunction are believed to play significant roles. Managing psoriasis involves a multifaceted approach that may include topical treatments, exosomes, laser treatments, and lifestyle modifications to alleviate symptoms, reduce inflammation, and improve the quality of life for individuals affected by this condition.
