Psoriasis is a common autoimmune disorder that causes patches of thickened skin covered with silvery scales on various parts of the body.
The cause of psoriasis is not fully understood but believed to involve an immune system response in which T cells mistakenly attack healthy skin cells.
Severity varies from person-to-person; some people only experience minor patches on their scalp or elbows while others have widespread disease that can be disabling.
