This chronic disease is known for its effects on the skin, which occurs when the immune system mistakenly triggers skin cells to overgrow.
As a result, the life cycle of cells is sped up and an excess of them can form inflamed patches of skin that may occur anywhere on the body, especially on the elbow, knees, lower back and scalp.
Today people living with the disease and their advocates are working to highlight the facts about psoriasis and change the biases based on unfounded fears.
