In brief: Symptoms of psoriasis​

Psoriasis occurs in different forms, but you will usually have thickened, red patches of skin, which may have silver/white scales.
The patches can vary in size and are clearly defined from the surrounding skin. Your skin may feel itchy, painful or sore. If you have mild symptoms, you may not be aware that you have psoriasis.


Some types of psoriasis can affect your scalp and cause redness and flaking. It can also affect your fingernails, which can become pitted, thickened or loosened from the nail bed.


If you have any of these symptoms, see a doctor.
