Caption: Psoriasis. Close-up of the scalp of a 17 year old boy showing the skin disease psoriasis. The scalp appears crusty, flaky and thickened. The affected area may become itchy, and the condition is a cause of severe dandruff. During psoriasis, new skin cells are produced about ten times faster than normal. Other sites of the body commonly affected include the elbows, forearms, knees and legs. The cause of psoriasis is unknown, although it is one of the commonest skin diseases. The disorder often runs in families and may be brought on by anxiety. There is no absolute cure known, although the condition can be relieved with corticosteroid drugs.
