An autoimmune disorder called psoriasis results in a fast accumulation of skin cells. Scaling is a result of this cell accumulation on the surface of your skin.

Around the scales, inflammation and redness are very typical. Typical psoriatic scales appear as thick, red patches and are whitish-silver.
