Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Psoriasis. Infected lesions on the back of a hand of a 50-year-old man. Psoriasis is a common skin disease involving a large increase in the speed of epidermal (outer skin layer) cell production, which causes scaly pink patches to form that may become infected and itchy. Psoriasis may be caused by certain infections, stress, or be drug- induced. If the area is excessively itched it may cause the skin to break and a secondary infection may occur (as in this case). Treatment, depending upon the cause, may involve ointments, phototherapy and drugs.
