Psoriatic Arthritis

Psoriasis is an autoimmune illness that causes scaly, red, and white patches on the skin as the immune system begins to target skin cells. Psoriatic arthritis, another autoimmune illness in which the immune system starts to produce inflammation in the joints, can occasionally occur in persons with psoriasis and results in painful, stiff, and swollen joints. Similar to psoriasis, the intensity of psoriatic arthritis symptoms varies from person to person. Any joint in the body may be impacted by psoriatic arthritis, whether there are one or more affected joints. Dactylitis, a disorder where the fingers and toes look like sausages, is common. Nail pitting may be visible in the fingernails and toenails as well.
