Psoriasis is commonly known as psoriasis and there are basically 4 types

Psoriasis, also known as psoriasis, is a chronic inflammatory skin disease. Depending on place of origin, psoriasis can be divided into four types: psoriasis vulgaris, arthropathic, pustular, and erythrodermic.

1. Normal

Psoriasis vulgaris is most common type, with disease mainly concentrating on scalp, limbs and trunk. Among them, in most patients with psoriasis, 50% of focus of disease falls on scalp. Psoriasis vulgaris manifests itself as red papules, plaques or plaques on skin, and on surface of papules there are silver-white phosphorous scales of irregular shape and size. Gently scrape off silvery white phosphorus with your fingers and a small amount of blood will come out of it.

2. Arthropathy

Clinically, arthropathic psoriasis is relatively rare and mainly affects joints such as fingers, wrists, and toes. Symptoms of psoriasis of joints are mainly redness, inflammation, swelling and pain in joints, as well as effusion in joint cavity.

3. Pustular

Pustular psoriasis is also less common and is mainly associated with factors such as infection, stress, and medication. Pustular psoriasis usually appears on palms or soles of hands and has an acute onset that can spread throughout body in a short period of time, causing red, swollen plaques and punctate-sized pustules. When pustules dry out, they form yellow-brown scales that expose skin and cause pain. In addition, it is accompanied by symptoms such as persistent fever, swelling and pain in joints.

4. Erythrodermic type

Erythrodermic psoriasis is also rare in clinical practice, but it is a serious and life-threatening disease that requires timely inpatient treatment. Erythrodermic psoriasis usually affects armpits, thighs, and navel, but can quickly spread throughout body as red, shiny, itchy skin over large areas of body, which then flakes or secretes an unknown fluid. At same time, it is accompanied by unpleasant symptoms such as severe pain, palpitations, chills or fever.

Blood deficiency, loss of yin and blood in body, deficiency of liver yin, or dysfunction of spleen and stomach will lead to inability of blood to metabolize, resulting in blood deficiency type psoriasis. Heat of Blood When heat enters blood, blood flow is accelerated, which can easily cause bleeding and rashes, leading to heat-blood type psoriasis. Blood stagnation, qi and blood flow unevenly, and skin becomes dehydrated, resulting in clogged meridians, qi and blood stagnation, and blood stasis-type psoriasis.
