Psoriasis is a non-contagious skin disease that causes dry, red, scaly patches (called lesions) on the skin.  These lesions can make the skin itch, burn, flake, or bleed. The most common form, plaque psoriasis, exhibits patches of raised, red skin covered with a silvery, white, flaky scale. Between 2 to 3 percent of the worldwide population has psoriasis. Plaque psoriasis currently has no known cure.
