Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease that typically develops on the scalp, arms, and legs. It causes the affected skin cells to replicate rapidly causing thick, dry patches of red skin that is often itchy. A disorder of the immune system, psoriasis is not contagious. There are several types of psoriasis that vary in appearance, but most common type is plaque psoriasis. In greater Boston, SkinCare Physicians is a leader in research and treatment of this complex disease.
