About few months ago, my wife noticed a red spot on her forearm. She got hurt on that spot about an year ago and for some reason, that scar was never healed. She finally told me that something was wrong with her scar. It looked just like psoriasis to me when I looked close to it. When I touched it, I can definitely feel the spot was elevated and the red lesions were there. She also told me it was extremely itchy sometimes.
I can also see her old skin peeling off constantly. It looked just like the early stage of my psoriasis, but something was different. The red spot was softer than the surrounding skin. It is exactly the opposite to mine. My psoriasis is really thick. So I did some research on the web and checked out few parapsoriasis pictures. They all looked just like my wife’s condition.
Honestly, I have no idea what parapsoriasis. It sounds just like psoriasis to me, but it is not. Symptoms are known to be similar, but causes aren’t. I really need to dig into parapsoriasis just in case my wife has the condition. I’m little worried if she has psoriasis as well. Which is an indication that she’s not healthy inside. Anyway, here is a picture of possible parapsoriasis.
