You’re upping your risk of psoriasis
Although people who have never touched a cigarette get psoriasis, smoking increases your risk of developing it, research shows. If you smoke a pack a day, your chances of getting psoriasis increase by 20 percent. If you smoke at this rate for more than 11 years, the risk of having psoriasis increases to 60 percent. To avoid this condition that causes scaly skin that is red, patchy, and flaking, put out that cigarette.
