Possibly psoriasis?

If anyone could shed some light on this, I would be so very thankful...

For almost the last year, I've had these red spots in the fold of my left elbow and upper arm with only one or two spots elsewhere, like on my right forearm and a couple on my chest. It is definitely most severe on the left arm, though. I haven't noticed it anywhere else on my body, they don't itch or burn, nor do they flake and they actually come and go in severity, though I couldn't tell you any sort of correlation between when they show up. It's recently flared up again to the point that my parents are becoming very worried and, though it hasn't exactly bothered me (aside to being just unpleasant to look at) I'm considering seeing a dermatologist. Before I make an appointment, thought, I wanted to get a second or perhaps third opinion about it. It would be nice if somebody could tell me whether or not I should worry, too.

If somebody could get back to me in a timely manner, that'd be awesome. My mother is about to lose her freaking mind.
