Hi! Sriniva M.,
Welocme to HealthcareMagic forum,
In psoriasis one gets silver white scales with skin peeling off associated with itching.Common sites on involvement are elbows ,knees,scalp ,extensor surface of lower leg,lower back.Cuts are rare.It would be good to show to a nearby dermatologist .
Take care,

Hi.. Psoriasis is associated with gross scally lesions with silvery flakes coming out, on scrubbing the lesions.. So if his symptoms matches these findings then may be it is.. I would suggest you to use professional help in sorting the issue ..

hello Mr srinivas,


please donot use any medications if not prescribed by a doctor as it might cause any hazard effects .and would advice to show yur son to a dermatologist as the symptoms you provide are less to confirm for the diagnosis as it might be a eczema or psoriais , close checkup will help to confirm.
