How Is Psoriasis Diagnosed?

If you suffer from the chronic condition known as psoriasis, you understand how difficult it is to deal with. Flare-ups of this disorder include flaking, redness, inflammation, itching, soreness, of the skin and thick, white, silvery, or red patches forming on the skin.
