With a history of eczema in my family, skin conditions are something I’ve learned quite a bit about. And recently, I’ve noticed my youngest has a rough patch or two on his body that may be an indication of one of the more common skin conditions.
Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that causes the formation of randomly distributed patches or plaques of compacted skin with a flaky or crusty appearance. Although initial outbreaks don’t usually occur until the late teens, up to 30% of sufferers are under ten years of age. There are many symptoms parents should look out for to help obtain an early diagnosis and suitable psoriasis treatment.
