Hi,

Psoriasis symptoms can vary from person to person but may include one or more of the following: red patches of skin covered with silvery scales, small scaling spots, dry or cracked skin that may bleed, Itching or  burning. Psoriasis can be diagnosed with a visual exam but a biopsy of the skin lesion may be done and examined under a microscope to determine the exact type of psoriasis and to rule out other disorders such as seborrheic dermatitis, lichen planus, neurodermatitis, and pityriasis rosea.
It would be good to see your doctor for proper evaluation and to rule out other causes.

Take care and keep us posted.
