This inflammatory skin condition known as psoriasis comes in several different types and all can cause itching and great discomfort. Psoriasis pictures show this cracked and bleeding condition while other psoriasis images show how fingernails and toenails are frequently affected. The final appearance is of raised red patches of skin covered with silvery scales.
Our gallery of psoriasis images shows the various types of psoriasis, including plaque psoriasis which is the most common, as follows:
- Flexural or inverse psoriasis which is where the condition appears as smooth but inflamed patches of skin in the skin folds, but especially around the genitals, the armpits and under the breasts.
- Guttate psoriasis which causes small red spots on the skin and often over large areas of the body. It is also often associated with strep throat infections.
- Pustular psoriasis which results in pus filled bumps surrounded by red skin in just the hands and feet or otherwise widespread patches on the body.
- Nail psoriasis which affects the appearance of fingers and toe nails.
- Erythrodermic psoriasis which results in widespread redness, severe itching and considerable pain and discomfort.
