The cause of Psoriasis is because of dry skin. A normal person’s skin cells rejuvenate over the course of a month. Old skin cells die off and flake off without much notice while new skin cells form and replace the old ones. Psoriasis does this but at a faster rate which causes the buildup of skin that forms scaly patches and lesions over the body. The skin disease is basically an abnormality in the skin cycle where the skin grows and replaces itself.
