RED ALERT – August Is Psoriasis Awareness Month
What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that impacts nearly 6 million Americans. Those with psoriasis often have red patches of skin with thick white scales – commonly on the elbows, knees and scalp. Aside from the way it looks, psoriasis is often itchy, irritating and messy - - there’s lots of flakey skin shedding.
With psoriasis, some part of the skin’s immune system is overactive, speeding up the skin’s metabolism. Normal skin renews itself every 60 days; psoriatic skin only takes nine days.
