Psoriasis. Psoriasis vulgaris is a chronic dermatosis of unknown etiology characterized by hyperproliferation and inflammation of the skin. The most common form of the disease is plaque psoriasis, in which skin develops scaly, raised red lesions. Psoriasis is thought to be an immune system problem. Triggers include infections, stress and cold. Topical corticosteroid preparations are the most effective agents when used continuously for 8 weeks; retinoids and coal tar were found to be of limited benefit and may be no better than placebo.
