Psoriasis is a skin condition that causes itchy, red, scaly patches across the body. Psoriasis flare-ups can range from small spots of scaly skin to very large patches. The face, palms, scalp, knees, legs, elbows lower back and soles of the feet are the most affected spots.
Causes Of Psoriasis
Psoriasis flare-ups can happen at any time, but they are often linked to certain triggers. Infections in the body and injuries to the skin are common triggers, as well as stress, dry weather, alcohol consumption and certain medications.
There appear to be genetic causes behind psoriasis. When someone with genetic predispositions are exposed to certain environmental triggers, psoriasis can be triggered. Determining the underlying causes of your psoriasis can help prevent flare ups and result in smooth, healthy skin.
