Other Skin Conditions

Many conditions can cause changes in the appearance of your skin. If you are concerned about changes to your skin’s appearance, see your doctor to better assess which type of skin condition you may have and to receive appropriate treatment.

Different rashes and skin conditions usually can be distinguished by their location, color, and appearance. Red, dry skin is commonly caused by infections, rosacea, or irritants. Seborrheic dermatitis can cause dandruff and crusty yellowed patches of skin that may be confused with psoriasis. Reiters disease and Lupus (systemic lupus erythematosus) may cause skin conditions and arthritis in a way similar to psoriasis. Various conditions and fungal infections also can give nails the appearance of psoriasis.
