Symptoms Can Be Constant or Cyclical and Vary According to the Type of Psoriasis
Plaque psoriasis is the most common type of psoriasis and represents approximately 80 percent of cases. Symptoms include red, inflamed, flaky, and itchy patches of skin throughout the body.
As the second most common type of psoriasis, this condition is especially prevalent amongst children. Rather than patches of skin plaque, patients experience small, raised, red dots.
While other types of psoriasis affect virtually every part of the body, this type specifically causes red lesions in the folds of the skin, such as the groin and armpits.
This particularly rare type presents as white, pus-filled boils.
