Plaque psoriasis. Close-up of dry inflamed skin lesions on the back of a 78-year-old male patient with psoriasis. Psoriasis is a condition in which 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 and may become infected.
