Checkout these mnemonics about Psoriatic Arthritis !

People with psoriasis, a long-term skin condition that causes red, scaly patches on the skin, are more likely to get psoriatic arthritis, a type of inflammatory arthritis. Psoriatic arthritis causes pain, stiffness, and swelling in the joints, as well as inflammation in other parts of the body, like the eyes and organs.

The symptoms of psoriatic arthritis can be mild or severe, depending on the person who has it. Pain, swelling, and stiffness in the joints, especially in the fingers, toes, ankles, and lower back, are common signs. Psoriatic arthritis can also make you tired, change your nails, and make your eyes swell up. In some cases, psoriatic arthritis can make the joints misaligned, which can cause permanent damage and make it hard to move.

Drugs like nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs), and biologic agents are often used together to treat psoriatic arthritis. Physical therapy and changes to your lifestyle, like exercise and a healthy diet, can also help control symptoms and improve your health as a whole.
