Psoriasis is a chronic disease in which a person’s immune system sends faulty signals that tell skin cells to grow too quickly. New skin cells form in days rather than weeks causing raised, red scaly patches to appear on the skin. It is typically found on the elbows, knees, scalp, lower back, and nails.
