Psoriasis beginning in childhood is more common in girls than in boys, and commonly other members of the patient's family also have the disease. When it begins in childhood, the course of the disease is generally more severe than when it begins in adult life. It is important to avoid therapy or trauma that will aggravate the course of the disease. Care should be taken to fully educate the psoriatic patient and his family.
