What is Psoriasis?
Just what, exactly, is Psoriasis? There are many places on the Web that try to answer this question.For the time being, I will defer to the National Psoriasis Foundation’s answer to this question. It’s one of the best and simplest explanations around. This page is mostly a list of other Web resources which attempt to answer the same question (some better than others).
