What is plaque psoriasis?

Plaque psoriasis is the most common form of psoriasis.(2,3) Its exact causes are unknown.(2,4) When you have this chronic (long-lasting) condition, your immune system triggers skin cells to develop too fast.(3,4)

Usually it takes about a month for skin cells to mature and rise to the surface. With plaque psoriasis, this process happens in only a few days.(5) The result is that large numbers of immature skin cells pile up on your skin. This pileup leads to red, scaly, thickened patches of skin (known as plaques).(5)

What does plaque psoriasis look like?

Red, scaly, thickened patches (plaques) of skin are common signs of plaque psoriasis. These plaques can appear almost anywhere, but are most often seen on the elbows, knees, scalp, and lower back.(2,3)

  • Smoking
  • Medication

How is plaque psoriasis commonly treated?

Most people treat plaque psoriasis using topical medications (those applied to the skin) such as Enstilar®.(3,7)

Both corticosteroids and vitamin D topical medications can be effective in the treatment of plaque psoriasis.(3) In fact, they are two of the most commonly prescribed treatments for plaque psoriasis.(3)

These medications are thought to work through the immune system to reduce inflammation and slow down the overproduction of skin cells.(3,7)
