Types of Psoriasis Treated with XTRAC

Psoriasis is a skin disease marked by red, itchy, scaly patches. Although Psoriasis can just be considered a skin condition, it actually starts underneath the skin as a disease of the immune system. Like many skin diseases, Psoriasis can also manifest itself in many different ways. These are the major types of Psoriasis treated with XTRAC:

Plaque Psoriasis

Plaque

This is the most commonly form of Psoriasis. Symptoms include raised, inflamed, red lesions covered by white scales. This typically occurs in the elbows, knees, scalp, and lower back.

Guttate Psoriasis

Guttate

This form is more commonly seen in children and young adults. Symptoms include small, red, individual spots on the torso, arms, and legs. This form can often clear on its own.

Inverse Psoriasis

Inverse

Symptoms for this form include bright-red lesions, smooth and shiny in appearance. This form typically occurs in the armpits, groin, under the breasts, and around the genitals and buttocks.

Pustular Psoriasis

Pustular

This form is seen in adults and is therefore considered an adult disease. It appears as white blisters of noninfectious pus surrounded by red skin. It can affect most of the body surface.

Erythrodermic Psoriasis

Erythrodermic

This is an inflammatory form of Psoriasis appearing as redness of the skin and shedding of the scales in bed sheets. Like Pustular, it will also typically affect most of the body surface.

Scalp Psoriasis

Scalp Psoriasis

This form is also very common, ranging from mild to very severe with thick plaques covering the entire scalp. Visible signs for this form can even extend to the forehead, around the ears, and back of the neck.
