Psoriasis or Eczema is a common skin condition that speeds up the life cycle of skin cells. It causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin. These extra skin cells form scales and red patches. These red  patches are itchy and painful.

Dead skin is something that everyone has to deal with in some form or another. In fact, most people shed about a million dead skin cells per day; however, if your dead skin is getting out of hand, particularly on your face or your feet (the two most commonly concerning areas), there are plenty of solutions available. By exfoliating your dead skin and taking steps to prevent dead skin in the future, you can maintain the happy, healthy “glow” of fresh, smooth skin for the long-term.

Following are the common symptoms of Psoriasis:

  1. Red patches on skin with thick scales
  2. Small spots spread on skin commonly in kids
  3. Dryness in skin
  4. Itching, burning sensation
  5. Thickened nails

Psoriasis is a chronic disease that often comes and goes. The main goal of treatment is to stop the skin cells from growing so quickly.
