What causes psoriasis?
Psoriasis is believed to arise when healthy skin cells are mistakenly targeted by the immune system. For the majority of people, this may not be a frequent issue. However, if the body starts fighting infection or illness, the increase of immune system activity will likely lead to a case of psoriasis.
What does psoriasis look like?
Light pink or red spots of raised, thickened, rough skin is indicative of the presence of psoriasis. The affected areas are most often noticed on the scalp, elbows, and knees; however, they could pop up almost anywhere on the skin.

What happens when psoriasis isn't treated?
Though acute bouts of psoriasis might not have long-term negative impacts, moderate to advanced bouts of the condition could lead to psoriatic arthritis without treatment. If left untreated, this type of arthritis could cause chronic discomfort and pain, mobility issues, and joint deformities.
