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.

Inverse Psoriasis

This type shows up as areas that are bright red, smooth, and shiny, but don’t have scales. It’s usually found in these locations:

  • Armpits
  • Groin
  • Under the breasts
  • Skin folds around the genitals and buttocks

Inverse psoriasis may worsen with sweating and rubbing. A buildup of yeast may trigger it.
