  • Plaques that occur on both sides of the body in the same location, such as both knees and/or elbows
  • Scaling can range from modest to extensive, crusty plaques 
  • Itching is typical in the days leading up to flare-ups, especially when psoriatic patches form in body folds like the buttocks or breasts
