Patient Comments: Psoriasis - Symptoms

What symptoms and signs did you experience with psoriasis?

Comment from: friendinneed, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: September 17

I have had psoriasis for 2 years. It started as a small spot on the left leg, and my doctor give me a cream to use for ringworms. In about 2 weeks it had spread over 98% of my body. I now have psoriatic arthritis in my fingertips, knee joints, and toes.
