Whilst it isn’t completely clear ehat causes Psoriasis, many researchers believe it is down to either the Immune System or Genetics.
Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition where the body mistakenly attacks itself. White blood cells known as T cells attack the skin cells.
Some people can inherit the genes that make them more likely to develop Psoriasis, especially if it is a member from the immediate family.
