Previous Next 6 of 8 Inverse psoriasis

Inverse psoriasis causes smooth patches of red, inflamed skin primarily in the armpits, groin, under the breasts and around the genitals. Psoriasis is worsened by obesity, friction and sweating.

Treatment options include topical or oral medications similar to those used for ordinary psoriasis and medications to remove yeast or bacterial infections in the area.
