A non-infectious disease of the skin distinguished by raised, rough, red areas which are covered with fine scales, silvery in color. This is due to an inflammatory condition and an increased production of epidermal cells.
This condition generally appears at the back of the elbows and also on the front of the knees.
Small pimples covered with white scales gradually enlarge until patches are formed.
It can then spread to the scalp and face.
This skin disorder generally appears during adolescence or early adulthood.
If parents are affected, there is a strong likelihood children will also suffer with the condition.
It can also be affected by the season, many having a problem with Psoriasis during spring and autumn.
When the quality of a person's health is low, Psoriasis may appear.
The condition often responds well to creams and ointments containing corticosteroid preparations.
Exposure to sunlight or ultra-violet light can also help considerably.
If the general health is improved, Psoriasis may also be kept well under control.

Author David L. Cram has long dealt with psoriasis patients and understands current knowledge of it and how patients and others react to it. Stress doesn't cause it, yet reducing stress often can help in managing it, and psychological scars are usually the main problem associated with it.
Cram speaks wisely about those matters, drawing on stories of his patients to show how such scars may affect all aspects of life and how they can be handled effectively.
