Psoriasis is a non-contagious, chronic disease of the immune system that affects an estimated 125 million people worldwide. According to the National Institutes of Health, more than seven million adult Americans have been diagnosed with psoriasis, of which 80% have plaque psoriasis. Plaque psoriasis generally appears as patches of raised, red skin covered by flaky white buildup of dead skin cells. These patches most often appear on the scalp, knees, elbows and torso, are often itchy and painful, and can crack and bleed.
