Normally the time gap between the production and shedding of skin cells is 28 days. But in case of psoriasis, it gets reduced to 7 days, which in turn results in poorly formed cells that don’t shed properly, gets piled up and causes scaling. It is due to an over activated T cell which triggers an inflammatory response that leads to the accelerated production of skin cells. However, the cause is unknown but it may be due to autoimmunity along with the genetics as a contributory factor.
