Psoriatic Arthritis

There is a chance that with psoriasis you also also develop inflammation of joints (psoriatic arthritis). This can come with swelling, stiffness and pain around the joints. Most people develop psoriasis first and are later diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. Flaym members talk about their experience with psoriatic arthritis. Join the conversation!
