Types of psoriasis: how to determine and what to do
At present, the spring triggering the mechanism of this disease is not exactly known. Medics are familiar only with the fact that the disease is hereditary, transmitted from generation to generation. At the same time, the carrier of this disease is not a threat to the health of others, because the psoriatic patches appearing on the skin are not infected.
Medicine believes that the maturation of the disease, for the most part, is dominated by the immune system, as it regulates the number of lymphocytes in the body, an excess of which creates a white plaque on the skin.
Any part of the human body, even the scalp, can be subject to psoriasis. Although most often this disease appears on areas of skin prone to friction - these are the knees, elbows, and between the buttocks.
