While scientists do not know what exactly causes psoriasis, we do know that the immune system and genetics play major roles in its development. However, the severity of psoriasis is also measured by how psoriasis affects a person’s quality of life. Vaginal psoriasis can be managed – you just need to ditch the leggings, moisturise and MAYBE use some steroid creams. In very rare cases, vaginal psoriasis can also find its way into the mucous membrane or inner vagina. Also often called flexural psoriasis, inverse psoriasis is a variety of the skin condition that affects the smooth skin folds of the body rather than the regular external skin.
See separate leaflet called Psoriatic Nail Disease for more details. A person with erythrodermic psoriasis may also have a high temperature (fever). This type of psoriasis is rare but it is serious and needs urgent treatment and admission to hospital.
