Psoriasis Diagnosis  

In most cases, psoriasis is diagnosed solely on the basis of physical examination. Your doctor recognizes the disease by observing the nature and location of the symptoms. During the examination, the dermatologist may scrape the areas affected with the psoriasis with a wooden spatula to loosen and remove the scales.  

However, if there are complications, your dermatologist can take a small sample of your skin to be examined under a microscope (biopsy) to rule out other skin conditions that have symptoms similar to psoriasis: seborrheic dermatitis, eczema, lupus, syphilis, skin cancer, etc.
