Psoriasis Types

Psoriasis is a condition that can show up in several ways. Psoriasis can affect different parts of the body, including the joints and nails. Multiple types of psoriasis disease can be found. Psoriasis, for instance, might start on your skin and progress to your nails later.

People with light or fair skin tones often get psoriasis that is pink or red with silvery-white scaling. It can have silvery-white scales and a salmon tint on people with medium skin tones. Psoriasis may appear violet, brown, or reddish brown on those with darker skin tones, frequently accompanied by light- or gray-colored plaques.

Psoriasis comes in a variety of forms, and it is possible to have more than one type. A few people get a second kind of psoriasis after years of having the first one; as a result, they have two different types of psoriasis on their skin.

There are several types of psoriasis most common ones are mentioned below

  1. Psoriasis Vulgaris


    It is also known as plaque psoriasis. The most common type of psoriasis is called psoriasis vulgaris. Plaque psoriasis is thought to affect between 80 and 90 percent of psoriasis sufferers. The typical size of patches is between 1 and 10 cm, although they can potentially be larger and cover more of your body. The discomfort will frequently worsen if you scratch the scales. Plaque psoriasis images are quite distinct from other types of psoriasis.

  2. Guttate Psoriasis


    it is a form of psoriasis that manifests as tiny, tear drop shaped, red, scaly areas on your skin. Normally, it doesn't leave a scar. It typically strikes a youngster or adolescent. As per the National Psoriasis Foundation, this type affects about one-third of people with psoriasis. Because there are so many cases, the guttate psoriasis treatment becomes important.

  3. Pustular Psoriasis


    It is a rare immune-mediated systemic skin condition with a wide range of clinical presentations and distribution patterns. It is characterized by yellowish pustules on an erythematous background. Psoriasis pustular is regarded as a subtype of psoriasis vulgaris.

  4. Inverse Psoriasis


    It affects the skin creases and skin folds, also known as hidden or intertriginous psoriasis. Your body has these places where skin rubs up against the skin. Any body part with creases is susceptible to inverse psoriasis, including the neck, buttocks, arms, under the breasts, and the groin or inner thigh region.

  5. Erythrodermic Psoriasis


    This uncommon form of psoriasis can be extremely dangerous and even fatal. Patients experience severe redness and scaling practically everywhere on their bodies, which is frequently followed by profuse scale shedding. Common triggers of this are getting a bad sunburn, taking steroids, etc. In severe situations, the patient may experience fever, infection, and dehydration, all of which may necessitate hospitalization.

  6. Nail Psoriasis


    is an autoimmune condition that alters the structure of your nails and produces discoloration and pitting. Although one can polish their nails and buff their nails to make them look better it might still make an individual feel self-conscious.

  7. Scalp Psoriasis


    A common skin condition that results in elevated, reddish, frequently scaly patches is scalp psoriasis. It may appear as a single patch, multiple patches, or even your entire scalp. It may also spread to your forehead, the back of your neck, or the area behind and inside of your ears. This psoriasis type is common in people with plaque psoriasis. It leaves the scalp dry with scaly or heavily crusted plaque areas.

  8. Psoriatic Arthritis


    a condition that creates red skin patches covered in silvery scales, can lead to psoriatic arthritis, a type of arthritis that affects some people who have it. Typically, psoriatic arthritis is detected years after psoriasis has been diagnosed. The symptoms of this psoriasis type include swelling, stiffness, and pain in the affected joints.

  9. Palmoplantar Psoriasis


    affects usually the hands and is known as palmoplantar psoriasis, though it can affect practically any part of the body, including the feet. Depending on how it presents, the condition can be classified as a subtype of either plaque psoriasis or pustular psoriasis.
