Psoriasis Fish Treatment in Kangal - Profile

General Information

Psoriasis (named after the Greek word psora meaning "to itch") is a chronic disease characterized by inflamed lesions covered with silvery-white scabs of dead skin. Commonly affected areas include the scalp, elbows, knees, navel, palms, ears and groin. Psoriasis is autoimmune in origin, and is not contagious (cannot be passed from one person to another). However some people with the condition suffer from social exclusion and discrimination. Around a quarter of people with psoriasis also suffer from psoriatic arthritis, which is similar to rheumatoid arthritis in its effects. It may appear for the first time at any age, although it is more likely to appear between the ages of 11 and 45.
