Psoriasis is a chronic condition caused by the immune system's overactivity. This leads to inflammation and a buildup of skin cells, that can result in skin “plaques” --- patches of inflamed, itchy scales --- or other symptoms that make the skin crusty, red, discolored, or raised.
Psoriasis affects up to 3% of the U.S. population — that’s more than 7.5 million adults.
WHAT TO KNOW ABOUT PSORIASIS
Despite its prevalence, psoriasis can be unpredictable and misunderstood.
There are several types of psoriasis, but the most common is plaque psoriasis, which causes patches of red, inflamed skin or “plaques.”
Psoriasis plaques can appear anywhere on the body, including the lips, fingernails and toenails.
Triggers include injured skin (cuts, scrapes), allergies, weather changes, and even stress.
Psoriasis can also cause arthritis which can result in swollen, painful joints and may affect about one third of psoriasis patients.
Facet provides compassionate care and a range of clinically proven treatments for mild to severe psoriasis.
Psoriasis is different for everyone. There are many types, symptoms, and areas of the body it can affect. Our skin specialists will learn about your unique experience and symptoms to design a treatment plan just for you.
