Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that affects millions of people, characterized by the development of thick, red, scaly patches on the skin’s surface. These patches, often referred to as plaques, can appear anywhere on the body and may cause itching, discomfort, and, in some cases, pain. Psoriasis is caused by an overactive immune system that triggers the skin cells to grow too quickly, leading to the formation of these scaly patches.
