The symptoms of psoriasis vary depending on the type you have. It is an immune disorder where your body is producing skin cells at a rate faster than it is shedding old skin cells. Psoriasis typically occurs on the knees, elbows, and scalp, and it can also affect the torso, palms, and soles of the feet.
The exact cause of psoriasis is unknown but it can be genetic.
Psoriatic arthritis is a form of arthritis that affects some people who have psoriasis — a condition that features red patches of skin topped with silvery scales. Most people develop psoriasis first and are later diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis, but the joint problems can sometimes begin before skin lesions appear.
