What is psoriasis actually?
Psoriasis is a disorder of the immune system. The white blood cells/T-Cells that produce antibodies view a section of normal skin as a pathogen, or as an affected area by a disease-causing agent, these cells trigger the brain to reproduce new skin to replace what it thinks are the damaged skin cells. Normal new skin cells regenerate every 28 days. When someone has psoriasis the newly triggered cells are produced every three to six days—hence the epidermis buildup!
