Approximately 125 million people around the world have psoriasis, making it a considerable public health challenge. Psoriasis is a chronic, inflammatory skin disorder that has no cure. It manifests most often as plaque psoriasis, which is usually characterized by circular to oval scaly red plaques distributed over extensor body surfaces and the scalp. In addition, patients are affected by multiple comorbidities, including psoriatic arthritis, depression, obesity, diabetes, liver disease, metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, and possibly an increased risk for COVID-19 illness.
