Causes & Symptoms of Psoriasis

Video Description

Psoriasis is not contagious and cannot spread to different parts of your body. Flare-ups are most likely to happen on your knees and elbows. It can also occur on the scalp and nails, but the disease can often be misdiagnosed in these locations. Symptoms of psoriasis include burning, itching, puss-filled blisters, swollen or stiff joins and dry, cracked skin that bleeds. Genetic predisposition is the greatest risk factor for developing psoriasis. Flare-ups can be caused by psoriasis triggers such as by infection, injury, stress, Lithium and certain blood pressure medications. If you begin to notice any symptoms associated with psoriasis, consult your physician.
