Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune skin disease that speeds up the growth cycle of skin cells.
Psoriasis often has a typical appearance that a primary care doctor can recognize, but it can be confused with other skin diseases (like eczema), so a dermatologist (skin doctor) is often the best doctor to diagnose it.
Psoriasis can lead to an arthritic condition called psoriatic arthritis which is often diagnosed by a rheumatologist (arthritis doctor).
