Psoriasis symptoms are evident after the age of 60

 Psoriasis is characterized by erythema, which is a symptom of redness in the skin, and the personality with white dead skin cells.

Psoriasis is characterized by erythemic skin lesions, which are covered with silver-white phosphorus with clear boundaries. It is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that occurs in areas that are highly irritated, such as the scalp, knee, and hip, and has repeated deterioration and improvement depending on the shape of the lesion. Unlike other skin diseases, the boundary between lesion and normal skin is distinct. 

Recently, the cause of psoriasis was found to be immune abnormalities, and it was found that the incidence of cardiovascular diseases such as metabolic syndrome, acute myocardial infarction, and paralysis was higher than that of ordinary people. In order to prevent secondary complications, it is a disease that requires constant treatment and management.




Typical psoriasis can be easily diagnosed by skin findings alone, but it is an early or chronic disease that is difficult to distinguish from other skin diseases, so a skin pathology biopsy is performed for confirmation.

At first, the skin is covered with a silver-white scale, with a rash that is reddish like narrow rice. As the rash becomes larger, it can be expanded to the size of the palm.

Common areas occur in elbows, knees, hips, and scalp.
