In brief: Psoriasis

ALONE should NOT cause inability to "get up and walk" Your aunt however may be suffering from PSORIATIC ARTHRITIS and she needs to have a complete medical evaluation by DERMATOLOGIST and RHEUMATOLOGIST Hope this helps you both! Dr Z

In brief: See rheum

If the problem is just the skin, consult a dermatologist.
If this involves psoriatic arthritis leading to the problem with walking, consult a rheumatologist hopefully before joint destruction sets in.
