Get to a Dermatologist right away! Five years ago I went to three different regular doctors, who had no idea what my skin problem was. One of them told me I had some weird African disease. A Dermatologist took one look at me......and told me I had PSORIASIS! That was the good news; the bad news is that I've got it for the rest of my life - and it affects many different parts of the body - not just the skin.
