What Is Psoriasis?
It's a skin condition that may indicate more serious health problems.
Psoriasis is a chronic disease caused by a dysregulation of the immune system triggered by underlying genetic factors.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, there are different types of psoriasis:
- Plaque (also called psoriasis vulgaris).
- Inverse (also called flexural psoriasis or intertriginous psoriasis).
- Erythrodermic (also called exfoliative psoriasis).
Some people get more than one type. Sometimes a person gets one type of psoriasis, and then the type of psoriasis changes.
