Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin disease characterized by recurring red patches covered with silvery scales. Anyone can get it, but it occurs more frequently in adults and in people with a family history of the disorder. The turnover of skin cells usually occurs once a month, but this process can happen in just a few days in people with psoriasis. While there is no cure for this condition, medications and light therapy are available to improve the skin's appearance.
