    Is psoriasis from genetics or is it triggered from disease such as herpes?

    Is psoriasis from genetics or is it triggered from disease such as herpes? I noticed my skin itching and red dry blotches on my legs and thighs and crotch areas eventually spreading over years when I was first diagnosed with genital herpes.

    It's an immune system issue so I suppose herpes could be involved. What does your doctor say?

    My doctor says he is the doctor so let him be the doctor. Doctor says psoriasis is genetic and don't worry about it until it's spread to majority of my body. Easier said than done. So I'm looking for a different doctor because I don't think me and this doctor are going to see eye to eye

    What kind of doctor are you seeing? Immune issues can be genetic like allergies. So it could,I guess. I'd look for either an immunologist or a dermatologist...
