According to the Mayo Clinic, psoriasis 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. The extra skin cells form scales and red patches that are itchy and sometimes painful. There are a number of natural remedies that can help in addition to the conventional treatments you’re receiving from your healthcare provider.
