In brief: Psoriasis

Researchers believe that for a person to develop psoriasis, the individual must have a combination of the genes that cause psoriasis and be exposed to specific external factors known as triggers.
The triggers include: stress, injury to the skin, medications, and infection. Some patients clam allergies, diet and weather trigger psoriasis.
