Were you looking for information about Psoriasis? Psoriases is a common misspelling of psoriasis.
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.
