Psoriasis is one of the most common skin rashes treated at Dermatology, Inc. The skin can become inflamed, with thickened red, scaly areas. Occasionally patients with psoriasis may also develop inflammation of their joints.

  • Plaque psoriasis – causes dry, raised, red skin lesions (plaques) covered by silvery scales.
  • Nail psoriasis – affects your finger & toe nails, causing pitting, abnormal nail growth, and discoloration.
  • Scalp psoriasis – location in the scalp can make treatment challenging.
  • Psoriatic Arthritis – inflammatory process can also create significant joint inflammation.
