What is Plaque Psoriasis?

Plaque psoriasis is a chronic skin disease recognized by the plaques it creates on the skin. These raised red patches are covered in a buildup of dead skin cells called scale. Plaques often itch or hurt. Though they can show up anywhere, they are commonly found on the elbows, knees, scalp, torso, and lower back. The patches vary in color, depending on each patient’s skin color.

Plaque psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that causes new skin cells to grow faster than normal, causing the buildup of plaques. Psoriasis isn’t contagious and can’t be spread by touch or close contact.

Plaque Psoriasis Symptoms

There are several types of plaque psoriasis, including small plaque psoriasis, large plaque psoriasis, unstable plaque psoriasis, and chronic stable plaque psoriasis.

Symptoms vary depending on each patient and the type of plaque psoriasis, but may include:

  • Raised, discolored plaques with a white or silvery surface
  • Cracks (fissures)
  • Itchiness, irritation, or pain
  • Bleeding
Though the cause of plaque psoriasis isn’t fully known, it seems to be hereditary or can be triggered by a skin injury, weather, sunburn, infection, medication reaction, stress, smoking, drinking alcohol, and certain foods.

Diagnosing Plaque Psoriasis

If you think you may have plaque psoriasis, make an appointment with your doctor to get properly diagnosed. Treatment can help alleviate the symptoms associated with this disease.

A dermatologist will diagnose plaque psoriasis by talking to you about your medical history and examining your skin. Because psoriasis can sometimes mimic the appearance of eczema and other skin diseases, a biopsy may be necessary to inspect your skin cells under a microscope. Allergy tests and blood tests are also sometimes used to diagnose this condition.

If you have psoriasis, you also have a higher chance of developing other conditions, including psoriatic arthritis, eye conditions, obesity, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, mental health conditions, or other autoimmune diseases.

Plaque Psoriasis Injection and Infusion Therapies

Plaque psoriasis is a chronic illness without a cure, though patients often cycle between healing and flare-ups. Proper and consistent treatment can help minimize flare-ups and their associated symptoms.

Many treatment options include topical medications, light therapy, and systemic drugs. However, plaque psoriasis injection and infusion therapies may be an option to clear up your skin and symptoms.

Injection and infusion therapies for plaque psoriasis include:

  • Avsola
  • Cimzia
  • Ilumya
  • Remicade
  • Renflexis
  • Simponi Aria
  • Skyrizi
  • Stelara
