It is a form of arthritis that affects people who are already suffering from psoriasis. It affect the skin and joints. One can have reddish patches on the skin topped with silvery scales and leads to inflammation of joints. There are symmetric psoriatic arthritis- which affects several joints in pairs on both sides of the body like both elbows and both the knees and Asymmetric psoriatic arthritis – it typically affects only few joints. Sometimes it can only affect the spine. Besides nails can be affected and one should be really vigilant to detect these changes
