Symptoms of Plaque psoriasis

The list of signs and symptoms mentioned in various sources for Plaque psoriasis includes the 8 symptoms listed below:

  • Patients report prominent itchy, red areas with increased skin scaling and peeling.
  • Patients are particularly aware of lesions on the scalp and extensor surfaces.
  • Patients typically are self-conscious about their lesions and commonly report using clothing to cover affected sites and avoiding potentially embarrassing social activities.
  • Patients commonly recognize that new lesions appear at sites of injury or trauma to the skin.
  • This isomorphic phenomenon (Koebner reaction) typically occurs 7-14 days after the skin has been injured and has been found in 38-76% of patients with plaque psoriasis.
  • In some patients, so-called reverse-Koebner reactions have also been noted in which preexisting psoriatic plaques actually clear after injury or trauma to the skin.
  • Patients may report that their disease worsens in the winter and improves in the summer.
  • Significant joint pain, stiffness, and deformity are reported in the 10-20% of patients with psoriasis who develop psoriatic arthritis.
