Scarring and Psoriasis

With having psoriasis, there is always a risk of developing scars after the psoriasis flare is over. Scarring most likely will occur in extreme case of psoriasis or after scratching the affected skin a lot. Taking good care of your skin during flares is important in order to avoid scarring. Share your tips with the community here about scarring and psoriasis.
