Were you looking for information about Psoriasis? Psoriassis is a common misspelling of psoriasis.
Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease that occurs when T cells in the immune system become too active and set off other immune responses, causing swelling and fast turnover of skin cells. It often causes patches of thick, red, scaly skin on the face, back, elbows, and palms. A number of things can worsen psoriasis, including infections, stress, and changes in weather. There is currently no cure for this condition, but various treatment options are available to improve the skin's appearance.
