Psoriasis: Causes and Symptoms

The exact cause of psoriasis is unknown. However, it's believed that your immune system and genes may contribute to the condition. T-cells normally fight viruses and bacteria. In psoriasis, they may start to attack healthy skin cells.  Our Body increases its production of new skin cells in response to this attack. These new skin cells move to the outer layer of your skin before dead skin cells shed, triggering scaly skin patches.

 Many patients with psoriasis in the United States do not receive sufficient treatment to control the disease is suggested by an analysis of surveys performed by the National Psoriasis Foundation between 2003 and 2011. Among the 5604 survey respondents with psoriasis, 52 percent expressed dissatisfaction with their treatment. Many patients received no treatment, including 37 to 49 percent of respondents with mild psoriasis, 24 to 36 percent of respondents with moderate psoriasis, and 9 to 30 percent of respondents with severe psoriasis.
