Perianal psoriasis

Psoriasis is not uncommon in the perianal area.


Erythema usually without scale may occur in psoriasis of the perianal area and intergluteal cleft.


Routine cleansing of the area of all fecal and urinary matter is essential. Low to medium potency topical steroids should be tried initially. Alternatively, pimecrolimus cream or tacrolimus ointment are excellent choices in the folds as they don't thin the skin.
