I haven't been to the doctor, but I think I might have psoriasis. What are the major presenting symptoms?

In brief: Skin plaques
Patients with psoriasis will typically have thickened plaques with silvery scale, often on erythematous bases.
Common locations are elbows, knees and certainly the trunk. Often patients will only have scalp psoriasis. A dermatologist will be able to help you with the diagnosis.
