    Psoriatic arthritis is one of the rare types of autoimmune disease that cause body's own immune system to harm skin and joints which leads to painful areas of swelling and inflammation.

Effects will be worsening over time in case of no treatment provided on time. Permanent damage occurs to joints and tissues if not treated promptly.
