Types of Psoriasis:
  • Erythrodermic psoriasis – This type of psoriasis is defined by severe scaling, patching, itching and is commonly accompanied with pain which affects most part of the body. Erythrodermic psoriasis may result to severe illness due to the fact that the inflammation produced disturbs the body’s chemical balance.
  • Guttate psoriasis – The word guttate is coined from the Latin word gutta which means “drop”. This type of psoriasis is defined by small pink drops on the skin. Flaking and scaling also occurs however, a lot finer compared to other types.
    Inverse psoriasis – An uncommon type of psoriasis is inverse psoriasis which occurs in the armpits, groin, under the breasts and in other areas of the body wherein the skin flexes and folds (like at the back of the knees). The areas affected result to smooth, deep red patches without scaling.
  • Nail psoriasis – This type of psoriasis is depicted by dry and crumbled nail bed. The nails sometimes separate from the skin which may appear red, brown or orange in color.
    Plaque psoriasis – (scientific name: psoriasis vulgaris) is considered to be the most common type of psoriasis. It is defined by small red bumps which enlarge in time, get inflamed and form into flakes. In this type, the flaky area of the skin shed easily. However, the skin beneath it which is still tender and soft is revealed resulting to bleeding and inflammation.
  • Pustular psoriasis – This type of psoriasis is considered to be rare which usually happens to adults and is characterized by the appearance of blister looking lesions on the skin. These blisters are filled with uninfected pus which is encased by reddened skin.
    Scalp psoriasis - Mild scalp psoriasis is characterized by fine scaly plaques on the skull’s surface. Instances when it is considered to be severe are when the presence of thick and crusted flakes is covering the entire area of the scalp. The severe type usually results to hair loss.
