If you are living with psoriasis, you know the pain it can cause. Psoriasis is caused by overactive cells in the immune system that trigger increased production of skin cells. These extra skin cells collect on the surface of the skin and form red, raised, scaly patches. The lesions may be itchy and painful. Severe itching can lead to infection, so it is important to treat the over production of skin cells, as well as the itching.
