Mainly symptoms in case of psoriasis are, the skin becomes inflamed and red, and eruptions appear on the surface of the skin that begin to itch excessively. These areas form thickened areas (plaques) that are covered with silvery scales over the reddened lesions. The skin at the joints may crack sometimes.

My son developed psoriasis. My suggestion is lots of patience as you have to apply creams twice a day to keep the skin moisturized. After 2 years it is now curing.
