Plaque Psoriasis

Plaque psoriasis is the most common form of psoriasis and appears as raised, red patches covered with a silvery white buildup of dead skin cells or scale. These patches or plaques most often appear on the scalp, knees, elbows and lower back. They are often itchy and painful, and they can crack and bleed. /source:
