Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune inflammatory skin disorder that causes skin inflammation and increases the rate of cell proliferation leading to thick and scaly skin. It typically occurs over the scalp, ear, umbilicus, lower back, elbows, knees, and genital area. It may involve the nails and joints and increase the risk of cardiovascular morbidity and psychosocial challenges.
Patients with psoriasis suffer from huge psychosocial impacts due to teasing and discrimination by the people surrounding them. Fortunately, with the presence of biologics treatments, it improves and controls the disease well, resulting in better chances of quality of life.
