Psoriasis Symptoms / What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a common skin condition affecting up to 5% of the population. Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease, involving the immune stem. Psoriasis presents most commonly as red scaling patches on the skin, and can range in severity from minor small patches of itchy skin, to whole body coverage.

Scalp psoriasis is a common form of psoriasis. It can show up as patches, or can affect your entire scalp. It can even spread to affect your neck, forehead or ears.

In a small percentage of patients with psoriasis a form of arthritis can develop (known as psoriatic arthritis). Recent research suggests psoriasis also is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, metabolic syndrome and other medical conditions.
