Plaque Psoriasis Symptoms
Plaque psoriasis causes raised, red patches, often with a silvery scale, known as
plaques, to appear on the skin. Plaques can appear anywhere on the body. The most common locations for the plaques are on the elbows, knees, scalp, and lower back.
Plaque psoriasis can be mild, moderate, or severe
Plaque psoriasis symptoms vary from person to person. Doctors use several factors to
determine the severity of a patient's psoriasis, including how much of the body's surface
area is covered by psoriasis plaques.
Doctors also consider where on the body the plaques are located or the severity of the appearance of the plaque. They may also measure the severity of plaque psoriasis by how it affects a person's ability to perform daily activities. Psoriasis can have a significant impact on a person's daily activities, even if it involves a small area of the body. ENBREL is approved to treat adults with chronic moderate to severe plaque psoriasis who are candidates for systemic therapy or phototherapy.
Take a few minutes to create a symptom profile that you can print and share with your dermatologist. The profile may help you and your doctor better understand the impact your plaque psoriasis has on your body and life. It may also help you start a conversation about finding the right treatment option for you.
