Im not talking about the triggers but what is the process of plaque psoriasis?
When i developed a rash a few weeks ago, my doctor mentioned psoriasis and i have been freaking out over every mark on my body - even over those pus filled normal acne spots on my arms. Anyway the worst of the rash cleared and im left with a new patch of red skin on my calf. It doesn't bother me except i think its psoriasis (because my granny has it i think i have it - and because the doctor said it without asking for a family history of psoriasis).
I have this patch on my calf for about a month. It gets dry and i have been moisturising it but there isn't any scale. But if it was plaque psoriasis, how long does it take for the thick scale to form? And even if its not psoriasis, i wouldn't mind knowing cause i know i can get it anytime since its in the family.
Maybe im just freaking and worrying over nothing.
