Are you experiencing inflamed, reddened, cracked, flakey, or peeling skin and wonder if you need to see a dermatologist? If so, then you may be dealing with psoriasis. There are several types of psoriasis, and your psoriasis treatment will depend on what variety you suffer from. One form of this skin condition is called inverse psoriasis.
Inverse psoriasis develops in areas of the body where skin touches skin, such as the genitals, groin, buttocks, armpits, behind the knee, and under the breasts. The condition appears in the form of bright red and shiny patches that are quite painful. In this type of psoriasis, sweating and rubbing in the affected area may worsen your symptoms.
At Arlington Dermatology, we treat a wide range of skin conditions, such as warts, acne, and psoriasis. If you suspect that you may have inverse psoriasis, then please call 847-392-5440 to schedule an appointment with our dermatologist in Arlington Heights.
