Psoriasis in Kids

Did you know that Psoriasis, a chronic skin condition, affects over 8 million children worldwide, and is on the rise in children in the United States? These staggering statistics highlight the importance of specialized care for our younger population dealing with this often challenging condition.

Beyond the numbers, we see the faces, families, and stories behind each case. 

At Natural Way Pediatric Dermatology, we aim to provide holistic and natural, evidence-based solutions that make a positive impact on your child’s skin health and overall well-being.  

What Is Acne?

Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune skin condition characterized by the rapid buildup of skin cells. It results in thick, red, and scaly patches. It can appear anywhere on your body, making you feel uncomfortable. 


Managing psoriasis includes a multifaceted approach that considers both physical and emotional aspects of the condition. Regular medical supervision and a tailored treatment plan are vital to get effective control and improved quality of life. 


In children, Psoriasis is most common on the: 

  • Face

  • Scalp

  • Diaper Area

  • Areas where skin touches the skin (such as where the arm bends or in the armpit) 

However, other symptoms of psoriasis include: 

  • Arthritis (painful, stiff, and swollen joints)

  • Dry, cracked skin that may bleed at times

  • Thick and pitted nails

  • About 40% of people with Psoriasis have a family history of the skin condition. 

  • Environmental triggers, such as stress, infection, and exposure to certain medications.

  • Inflammatory response. 

  • Increased intestinal permeability (leaky gut) and gut dysbiosis 

  • Hormonal changes.

  • Physical trauma or injury to the skin, such as cuts, or burns. 

It’s always recommended to consult with a skilled and experienced healthcare professional to get a proper diagnosis and guidance.
