Psoriasis is a common, chronic, immune-mediated disease manifested in the skin, affecting 2-3% of the population. It appears in early adulthood and is a lifelong condition. Up to 90% of all psoriasis patients have plaque psoriasis, which is characterized by “plaques” of the skin, that are mainly found on the scalp, knees, elbows, trunk, and limbs causing itching and pain. Psoriasis is diagnosed by medical examination and can upon diagnosis be treated accordingly. The first in line treatments include topical corticosteroids, while severe cases may receive biologics and oral treatments.
