This is a controversial skin condition to treat.
It is caused by an excessive build up of cells in the epidermis, which causes inflammation and flaking.
Psoriasis starts in the epidermis (outer layer of skin), where keratinocytes are made, keratinocytes are epidermal skin cells that produce keratin, a tough protein that helps form nails and skin.
In normal cell growth these keratinocytes move from the bottom layer to the skin’s surface unnoticed, this cell growth normally takes around a month.
However, in people with psoriasis, the keratinocytes multiply very rapidly.
They travel from the basal layer to the skin’s surface, in around three to four days.
The skin cannot shed these cells quickly enough, so they build up on the skin, this leads to thick dry, flaky, silver plaque; It is this build up, that causes the dermis to become red and swollen.
