Can a Psoriasis Lesion start out looking just like a pimple or ingrown hair?
I have a lesion in my groin that Doctors seem to disagree as to what is causing it. One dermatologist said it is Psoriasis, another dermatologist said he wasnt sure what it was for sure, and a general physician said he thought it looked like an allergic lesion to soap or chemical and called it atopic dermatitis.
At this point in time it doesnt look like it used to when it started out. Now it is kinda oval shaped, red, and has a clear crust of skin that peels off every few days similar to psoriasis. But when the lesiion just started out it looked just like a little red pimple or ingrown hair, for a couple weeks, then it kinda flattened and spread out to form a more regular psoriasis looking lesion. No it isnt Pustular Psoriasis, I know they say that looks like a pimple, but this never looked anything like the examples of Pustular psoriasis that I've seen. It looks now like the regular "Plaque" type, if it is even Psoriasis. So heres my questions
1. Can a "Plaque" Psoriasis lesion when it just starts popping up on the skin, look just like a pimple, with a little bump or ingrown hair?
2. Is it common for a person with psoriasis to have just 1 Lesion on their body and not have several lesions like most people with psoriasis, cause I never got any more lesions anywhere on my body, just the one lesion?
Thanks for your time
