Types of Psoriasis

Inverse Psoriasis
Inverse psoriasis is characterized by smooth, red patches that occur in the folds of the skin near the genitals, under the breasts, or in the armpits. These psoriasis symptoms may be worsened by friction and sweating.
 
Erythrodermic Psoriasis
Erythrodermic psoriasis is characterized by widespread reddening and scaling of the skin. This may be a reaction to severe sunburn or to taking corticosteroids (cortisone) or other medications. This psoriasis type can also be caused by a prolonged period of increased activity of psoriasis that is poorly controlled.
 
Psoriatic Arthritis
In this type of psoriasis, joint inflammation produces symptoms of arthritis in patients who have or will develop psoriasis.
