Psoriasis is an immune-mediated disease which affects the skin and joints. When it affects the skin it commonly appears as red scaly elevated patches called plaques. Psoriasis plaques frequently occur on the elbows and knees, but can affect any area of skin including the scalp and genital area. Psoriasis can also cause inflammation of the joints. This is known as psoriatic arthritis.

    Psoriasis and Depression

    I often feel that my psoriasis makes me feel totally depressed more than anything else. I am on disability for major depression. There are times that I just don't want to get up and look in the mirror and shave, because I know that there are some spots under my goatee. Do any of you people have the same problem? and, How did you handle this situation?
