INTRODUCTION

Plague psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that cause your cells to reproduce very quickly resulting in thick, scaly patches on skin called plaques which is generally characterized by symptoms such as raised, discolored (red, brown, gray or purple) plaques with a white or silvery surface, cracks (fissures), bleeding, itchiness, irritation and or pain which most commonly occurs on elbow, back, knees and scalp.

Along with this treatment, your doctor might advise you to take an ACTH (adrenocorticotropic hormone) stimulation test to evaluate HPA axis suppression (a condition that causes poor body defense against infection) especially in children to prevent its effect in the body.
