What Is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that affects the skin, hair, and nails. When the body produces skin cells at a high rate, dead cells build up on the skin’s surface, forming scales that flake off. It’s not contagious, so whether you or someone else has it, there shouldn’t be any concern of contact. Those that do have it will live with the disease forever. However, symptoms will not always be visible. Outbreaks come and go in cycles, and certain things may trigger an outbreak. These may include:
- Injury to the skin
- Change of season
- General health factors
Different Types of Psoriasis
While psoriasis is an autoimmune disease, there are various types within this category. The typical symptom is scaly, patchy skin, and it is sometimes confused with eczema. Each form of psoriasis has similar signs and signals. Still, there are differences with each, and it’s critical that our team correctly diagnose a patient’s specific type to provide proper treatment.
- Plaque psoriasis – This is the most common type and comes with whitish-silvery scaly spots on the elbows, knees, scalp, and lower back.
- Guttate psoriasis – This form is noticeable by the small red and scaly patches it produces. It is common in children after they have an infection.
- Inverse psoriasis – Patients seeking treatment for inverse psoriasis may assume they have a rash at first. The symptom is a smooth, shinier patch and occurs where skin folds over itself, such as the armpit, groin area, or under breasts.
- Pustular psoriasis – Those with pustular psoriasis will have scaly skin, but the differentiator is the yellowish, puss-filled blisters that form in areas like the hands and feet.
- Erythrodermic psoriasis – This is a severe form of psoriasis that covers most of the body. Red, scaly skin comes off in larger sheets.

I have a fair complexion and susceptible to skin issues. Enjoy going to their office the doctors and assistants have been very kind. Would recommend this office.
I had a great experience removing my skin cancer on the front of my shoulder a week ago. They were kind, detailed, and took the time to explain the whole process. I am glad I have chosen them to assist with my dermatology needs.
