A look at the major causes, symptoms, and psoriasis treatment methods

Psoriasis is an autoimmune skin disease that is characterized mainly by the itchy, scaly and dry skin. The effects of this condition are long term and in most cases they are left untreated. The five main types of Psoriasis are erythrodermic, pustular, inverse, guttate and plaque. The areas and the nature of skin patches that these five different types of psoriasis have differ from each other. The most common type of the disease is plaque Vulgaris that affects the maximum number of people. It has red patches with dry scales and occurs mostly on shins, forearms and the area around the belly button. In some cases of Psoriasis-like erythrodermic, fingernails can also be affected resulting in pits on the nails and discoloration.


The majority of the symptoms for this skin condition has got to do with scaly and dry skin with redness. The affected area can feel sensitive and probably itchy and painful too. The skin becomes textured with a dry, scaly pattern and there is a significant inflammation of the skin resulting in discomfort and pain.

In some cases, the finger nails and toe nails are also affected a lot with the nail bed below them becoming loose and detached from the nail.


Most people affected by Psoriasis have a family history of the disease. It is a genetic condition. Some of the other external causes that can flare up and already affected area are listed below:

  • Harsh environmental conditions with the dry and cold weather.
  • Infections ranging from tonsillitis to HIV can result in a breakout of Psoriasis.
