Psoriasis is a common skin condition causing red patches due to inflamed skin which might look silver-white. Its outbreak is generally on the elbows and knees but is also common on the scalp. Though the exact cause of psoriasis is not known, it is considered to be a kind of inflammatory disorder which causes abnormal cell turnover in the skin. As a result multiple layers of skin cells are deposited on surface of the skin causing scaling. This process happens frequently in psoriasis patients, and becomes a matter of concern when the severity of the condition becomes alarming resulting in psoriasis vulgaris. There are several reasons touted for this disease, like genetic causes, stress, abnormal immune response to some bacterial or viral infections etc. Various triggering agents like certain medicines- anti-malaria drugs, lithium, beta-blockers, excessive alcohol consumption, injuries, and weather changes can also be the reasons behind this condition.
