What skin areas are the first to be affected?

 

What are the skin areas affected by psoriasis and where does it generally start?

In the majority of cases, the psoriasis disease starts spreading from the areas experiencing effective rubbing, e.g. elbows, knees, groin, head. Often the condition will spread over to other parts of the body – face, ears, stomach and back.

This sickness is generally known to be a recurring condition and the severity of its onsets can differ from one case to another. As for the skin areas affected by psoriasis, these can also range from small to vast, depending on the patient and the level of disease. Psoriasis affects minor body parts and can reach complete body coverage. Also, fingernails and toenails can be affected and this condition is called psoriatic nail dystrophy. The joints are generally most affected, leading to a special form of arthritis.
