Psoriasis itself does not have to be in the family but certain types of arthritis carries it as well . No one in my family has psoriasis however my grandmothers both have R.arthritis . However the circular rash if psoriasis will scale off this is called shedding . Psoriasis is referred to as the healthy man disease it is areas of skin cells reproducing at a rapid rate . Sounds to me like that spot could he psoriasis however the other sounds like contact dermatitis caused by chemicals and or something you are allergic to. I am allergic to latex and that is also in bananas so if I peel a banana for my son I must wash my hands immediately or the rash appears.
