Psoriatic arthritis (PsA) is an autoimmune disease that most often affects people who have the chronic skin disease psoriasis. Many people who have psoriasis are not aware of the risk of psoriatic arthritis. PsA affects the joints and skin, and may also affect the fingers and toes.
The symptoms of the disease may come and go, and people with PsA, who follow an effective treatment plan, can experience periods of remission (low to no disease activity). However, there is no cure for PsA, so the disease requires ongoing monitoring and treatment as you engage in healthy lifestyle habits.
