You should talk to your doctor about your plaque psoriasis. If you are exhibiting symptoms of plaque psoriasis, schedule a visit so that a doctor may confirm the diagnosis and begin treatment. If you already have plaque psoriasis and your symptoms worsen, spread, or cause pain, visit a doctor so treatment can be adjusted. If you have a treatment plan and it does not seem to be working, talk to your doctor for advice or to arrange an appointment.

Who is affected by plaque psoriasis?
Michael Roizen, MD, Internal Medicine, answered
Plaque psoriasis is color and gender blind. It can affect anyone regardless of age or race. That being said, it occurs more often in Caucasians than African-Americans (2.5% vs. 1.3%). It also typically develops in people between 15 and 35 years of age, but people of all ages can have it, including rare cases of small children or infants.
