Dryness of the skin. Usually, a feeling of tightened skin arises around the elbows, face, and scalp. But the zones may be different; it can not be said that psoriasis appears only in the mentioned areas. In areas with dry skin, small rashes appear, which are delineated clearly from the surrounding skin and slightly elevated above it. Also there the emergence of scales on the superficies of the rash can arise. Forced removal of flakes is undesirable; it can lead to burning of the skin in this area and the creation of cracks.
