The true cause
of plaque psoriasis
While psoriasis might appear as patches on your skin,
it actually starts inside your body.
Psoriasis is caused by overactive inflammation inside your body.
Over time, this overactive inflammation is thought to speed up the growth cycle of skin cells.
As skin cells build up, they appear on your skin as red, raised patches.
When the cells die, they take on a silvery, scaly look associated with psoriasis.
