'Intertrigo can look almost identical to psoriasis which typically causes large, red, scaly patches on the skin - intertrigo is particularly close to flexural psoriasis
which targets the folds of the skin under the breasts and buttocks.
Other less common types include flexural psoriasis
and palmoplantar nonpustular psoriasis, each with 0.4% (Figure 1).
The differential diagnosis included flexural psoriasis
, an allergy to the nickel in her under wired bra, and intertriginous dermatitis (moisture-associated skin damage).
Although all clinical types seen in children as in adults, guttat and flexural psoriasis
are more frequent and more severe forms like pustular and eritrodermic psoriasis are rare.
* Seborrhoeic dermatitis may resemble flexural psoriasis
. Other skin areas should be examined.
