More information about Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic skin disorder that is sometimes mistaken for common types of dermatitis. Psoriasis causes skin cells to multiply faster than normal (up to 10x). Thanks to the increased cell growth, skin build-up becomes irritated, creating bumpy, red patches on the skin. 

Psoriasis scales that are itchy and uncomfortable can present anywhere on the body but typically appear on the scalp, elbows, lower back, and knees. 

The symptoms of psoriasis include:

  • Itchy skin
  • Dry or cracked skin
  • Dry or scaly scalp
  • Painful skin
  • Weak and cracked nails
  • Joint pain

Psoriasis is a chronic disorder with no cure, but with the help of the Skincredible team, many patients can effectively alleviate the harsher and more painful symptoms of psoriasis. 

Our expert team at Skincredible Dermatology can help you diagnose and find the right treatment for your psoriasis. We will determine the best course of action based on the severity of your skin disorder as well as other factors such as age and overall health.
