“When I undress, I notice skin flaking off.” “The way my skin looks is embarrassing.” “I have red scaly spots on my lower legs.”
This or a similar experience is what people report with regard to the appearance of their skin when suffering from psoriasis.
The skin of those affected is covered with pinpoint-sized to large palm-sized red areas and they most often appear on the knees, elbow or scalp. The skin grows too quickly, resulting in the characteristic thick, white, silvery patching of the skin. The appearance of pinhead-sized depressions in the nails or several subtle dimples on the surface of the nails is also typical.
Psoriasis can be accompanied by inflammation in joints and adjacent soft tissues as well as the eyes and the vascular system.
