What is Psoriasis – Erythrodermic Psoriasis
The 7 Types of Psoriasis
Knowing which kind of psoriasis you have helps you and your doctor make a treatment plan. Most people only have one type at a time. Sometimes, after your symptoms go away, a new form of psoriasis will crop up in response to a trigger.
Here’s how you can spot the 7 types of psoriasis.
This type is the least common, but it’s very serious. It affects most of your body and causes widespread, fiery skin that appears burned. You might also have:
- Severe itching, burning, or peeling
- A faster heart rate
- Changes in body temperature
If you have these symptoms, see your doctor right away. You may need to get treated in a hospital. This type of psoriasis can cause severe illness from protein and fluid loss. You may also develop an infection, pneumonia, or congestive heart failure.
- Suddenly stopping your systemic psoriasis treatment
- An allergic drug reaction
- Severe sunburn
- Medications such as lithium, anti-malarial drugs, cortisone, or strong coal tar products
Erythrodermic psoriasis may also happen if your psoriasis is hard to control.
