Coping, treatment, healthcare system
Everyone: I have just seen someone with Rupioid Psoriasis. Never knew this type of P existed. I don't get scared easily but this is scary. Do you know anyone with Rupioid P?

To diagnose the underlying infectious or inflammatory diseases beneath the thick crusts, skin biopsy and a blood test for syphilis may be necessary.
I have never seen any P like this before and I don't think I will ever complain about my Psoriasis ever again. I googled it and this is what it says "cone-shaped plaques with thick, dark, lamellate, and adherent crusts on the skin somewhat resembling oyster or limpet shells. Histologically, a serosanguineous exudate along with thick skin helps to impart a “dirty” appearance to rupioid lesions".

It does John and it looks much worse than our ordinary P. I'm trying to find more out about the type of P. Looks like anyone can get it as well but there must be something else that trigger that kind of P. I need to know what.

Sometimes I feel better for not knowing too much so I will pretend I never saw this version. And I didn’t google it, and I have never heard it before.

I'm sorry for posting this as I know what a sensitive matter our P is to all. Just felt that we should be open minded about all types of P. Didn't mean to shock you all. Sorry
