What are the symptoms of psoriasis?

ANSWER

Psoriasis starts as small, red bumps, which grow bigger and form scales. The skin appears thick, but may bleed easily if you pick or rub off the scales.

Rashes may itch and skin may become cracked and painful. Nails may form pits, thicken, crack and loosen.
