Find your Psoriatic Arthritis Symptom Triggers.
Approximately a third of people with psoriasis will also develop a form of arthritis known as psoriatic arthritis (PsA). PsA causes thick, red patches and distinctive silvery scales to appear on the skin. Mymee identifies unique PsA triggers to reduce symptoms and help you gain control of flares.
Psoriasis Causes & Symptoms
PsA is an autoimmune disease that attacks healthy cells, resulting in inflammation, stiffness and pain. Though it generally affects the skin, PsA can also cause inflammation in the eyes, heart, lungs, and gastrointestinal tract. Flares are likely caused by a combination of factors, including hidden triggers in your exposome.
PsA symptoms vary widely. In some cases, the disease begins damaging joints before visible signs of it appear, making it harder to diagnose. In some people, the red patches and dry skin only appear in select areas on the body, while others have it in multiple places. In severe cases, these patches can cover up to 10% of the body.
When people with PsA flare, these symptoms are at their worst. Flares can be followed by periods of remission that can last for months.
Common PsA Symptoms:
- Red patches of thick skin with silvery scales
- Joint pain
- Swollen fingers and toes
- Chronic fatigue
- Burning and itching sensations
- Eye irritation and inflammation
