What are the symptoms of plaque psoriasis?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
The symptoms of plaque psoriasis include thick, raised patches of dry skin lesions (plaques) anywhere on the body. They can be red with silvery scales, itchy, and painful. Some only have a few lesions, while others can have multiple lesions that may even crack or bleed. Symptoms tend to have periods of flaring and subsiding. For some, symptoms diminish in summer months when exposed to sun and flare in winter months or during periods of stress.
What skin disorder caused the small, pus-filled bumps on my chest?
Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredOne possibility for small, pus-filled bumps on your chest is that you've developed folliculitis. This common condition occurs when hair follicles become infected and inflamed. One specific form of this condition is called pityrosporum folliculitis. It's caused by a yeast infection and typically produces red, itchy bumps on the chest or back. This form of folliculitis is most common in male teens and adults.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
