Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Basically to be able to find out the cause of an abnormality in the skin, a direct examination must be made on the lesion on the skin. If necessary investigations (such as skin scrapings or skin biopsies) can also be done. Looking at the description of your symptoms, chances are you have psoriasis. However, it is still necessary to consider other possible causes such as contact dermatitis, seborrheic dermatitis, atopic dermatitis, fungal infections of the skin, numularis dermatitis, lichen planus, and so forth.


You can try to see your dermatologist for further evaluation and diagnosis. Given the current corona virus pandemic, it is best if your symptoms do not require immediate (emergency) treatment, the examination is postponed first to reduce the risk of exposure and contracting the virus. You can try to see your dermatologist after the pandemic is over. For now you can try to look for triggers for lesions on your skin if they are present (for example friction, certain foods, contact with certain clothing materials, stress, smoking, etc.). Try to avoid these triggers and monitor again whether your symptoms still appear or not. You can also try to use a skin moisturizer especially after you take a shower, use a moisturizer more often if your symptoms are appearing.

In addition to information from me, hopefully enough to answer
