Psoriasis. Conceptual computer artwork of flaky spheres, representing the skin condition psoriasis. In psoriasis, skin cells are produced much faster than normal. The body cannot shed the cells fast enough, resulting in patches (plaques) of scaly, thick skin, which are often itchy. It is thought to be triggered by emotional stress, some infections, or certain drugs, although in many cases there is no obvious cause.
