Psoriasis information and locations in Mexico

Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease that causes inflammation and excessive accumulation of cells on the surface of the skin. It is characterized by the appearance of red, scaly plaques that cause itching and pain.
Psoriasis can appear anywhere on the body but is most common on the elbows, knees, scalp, and back. It is believed to be the result of an interaction between genetic, environmental, and immune system factors as the immune system plays an important role in causing excessive inflammation, accelerated production of skin cells. In some cases, environmental factors such as stress or injury can worsen symptoms.
Treatment depends on the severity, type, and location; some treatment options include creams, ointments, phototherapy, oral or injectable medications.
