Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that occurs when the the growth of skin cells occurs at an excessively fast rate such that red-, white- or silver-coloured skin patches form on the skin.
Under normal conditions, skin cells grow more slowly and, about every month or so, flake off. These flaked off skin cells are replaced by new skin cells that grow on the exterior layer of the skin. Under abnormal conditions caused by psoriasis, however, new skin cells form, not in a matter of a month but in a matter of days, which leads to thick patches of different sizes. While people of all ages can come down with psoriasis, the skin condition mostly affects adults, and the areas of the body most susceptible include the back, knees, hands, elbows, and feet. Even so, the skin condition can lead to symptoms like itching, pain, or soreness.
While experts are not certain about what causes psoriasis, some believe that the skin condition occurs when the immune system reacts too strongly, which leads to inflammation and skin flaking. It is known that psoriasis, while not a communicable skin condition, can nonetheless be hereditary.
Some psoriasis cases are relatively mild and can therefore be kept in check with a skin care plan that includes using lotions to keep the skin from drying out as well as taking any medicine prescribed by a physician. Some psoriasis cases are quite severe and more difficult to treat, which will necessitate trying various options. In some cases, psoriasis could be a lifelong condition requiring ongoing treatment.

I was injured in a car accident and sustained a fractured ankle, developing debilitating chronic pain. Joseph was very caring about me and how my case affected my family. He worked tirelessly on my case until we won and my case is now well known in the legal community. Throughout this whole ordeal, the only thing I can be thankful for is that Joseph was my lawyer, his care, compassion and experience made all the difference.
I can’t thank Joseph Campisi enough. I was involved in a serious car accident and I suffered serious orthopaedic injuries which prevent me from ever returning to the job that I had at the time of the accident. Joseph and his team were always accessible, even on evenings or weekends. The settlement far exceeded my expectations and it will provide financial security for me and my family.
I feel fortunate that I was referred to Cesar Carranza. I suffered a spinal cord injury when I fell off a trailer. From the initial meeting when Cesar came to the hospital, he alleviated most of my troubles and I was able to focus on getting better. Cesar and Joseph settled my case quickly, and I felt supported through the whole process, not only by them but also by an awesome medical and rehabilitation team that they assembled.
My father was in a horrible crash and he suffered a severe brain injury as well as serious fractures. Joseph Campisi came highly recommended and he promised us that he would be relentless in representing my father. He kept his promise.
