Causes of Psoriasis

Although its causes are not fully understood, psoriasis is not contagious. Your chances of developing psoriasis can be influenced by a family history of the condition and/or by environmental triggers such as infections, sunburns, or medications. Recent research has identified genes that may lead some people to be more susceptible to psoriasis, but some people who are genetically predisposed may never develop the condition.
