What are the symptoms of inverse psoriasis?

ANSWER

The main symptom is red, shiny patches of skin in skin folds. Lesions can cause cracks (called fissures) in the creases of your skin, which may be painful and bleed. Because of its location, the disease may also cause:

  • Irritation from rubbing and sweating
  • Yeast or fungal infections
  • Sexual problems because of discomfort
