Features of the disease

Developing in the form of numerous skin lesions with the formation of dry particles of a grayish hue, ordinary psoriasis develops on the surface of the skin areas with reddened and extremely sensitive skin.The bright red surface is caused by the close proximity to the surface of small blood vessels, which even with mild mechanical stress break down and the formation of small wounds.With further progression of the disease, small areas of the affected red skin combine to form the so-called psoriatic plaques.

To date, this disease can not be completely cured, but timely diagnosis allows you to take measures to stop its progr

ession and improve the overall condition of the patient. A feature of this form of the disease can be considered the possibility of its long flow with implicit, sometimes blurred external manifestations, which makes it difficult to diagnose and treat.

Vulgar psoriasis is diagnosed with the same frequency in both women and men, and can be inherited through the father and mother.
