Plaque psoriasis is the most common form of the disease and appears as raised, red patches covered with a silvery white build up of dead skin cells. 

Part of the misconception of psoriasis is that it potentially could be contagious. Psoriasis is not contagious. Because psoriasis is often misunderstood, there are many myths and misconceptions about what psoriasis is and how people get it. Psoriasis is a disease of the immune system and is not something you can catch. 

In their search for a solution, people look for medical and natural alternatives so we will cover both here.
