Psoriasis is often linked to gluten sensitivities, yeast overgrowth in the gut, or heavy metal exposures. And no, we’re not talking about the music your kids listen to (although you might think you have a sensitivity to that)!
Psoriasis results in patches of thick, red, and inflamed skin covered with silvery scales. These patches usually feel sore and may itch. The skin may also start to crack around affected joints. They most often occur on the elbows, legs, scalp, lower back, face, palms and soles of the feet, but they can occur anywhere on the body.
The disease may also affect fingernails, toenails, soft tissues of the genitals, and inside the mouth. Some people with psoriasis experience joint inflammation that produces symptoms of arthritis—this is called psoriatic arthritis.
