What Is Psoriasis?
An overactive immune system can cause you to develop psoriasis. It is a chronic skin condition with symptoms including flaking, inflammation, and thick, white, or red patches on your skin. It is caused by a mix up of the genes that control your immune system. Inflammation occurs on your skin when it no longer does its job of protecting your body from invaders as it’s designed to do. Other factors that could lead to psoriasis include hormone changes, alcohol, stress, smoking, medication, HIV, infection, sunlight, injury, weight, and weather.
Psoriasis is not contagious. It cannot be caught by physical contact of any kind. It used to be confused with leprosy, but there is no need to worry. It cannot be passed from one person to another.
