What is the range of psoriasis symptoms?
Psoriasis symptoms range from mild to severe or chronic. Psoriasis cannot be cured. However, treatment for your level of severity is most effective when your psoriasis is flaring up. If almost all of your skin is affected, this is an acute attack, and you require prompt, aggressive treatment. A flare-up of severe psoriasis can lead to an acute infection. In women, a secondary condition of chronic arthritis develops in nearly 1 out of 10 cases. See also: What form of psoriasis do I have?
