Psoriatic Arthritis**
        
 
Psoriatic Arthritis is a condition that causes pain and swelling in the joints and scaly patches on the skin. It usually occurs in people who have psoriasis. If someone does have psoriasis that does not mean that they will develop PA. The joint pain that is caused by PA is usually associated with pain and swelling especially in the knees, ankles, fingers and toes. They might also have neck or back pain and stiffness and this can limit their mobility. PA affects both men and women and the age of onset is between 30 and 55.
