Detailed Answer:
Hello

After going through the medical query raised by you I can understand your concern and I would like to tell you that psoriasis do run in family.

The chance of developing Psoriasis is about 10% if one parent has psoriasis and if both the parents have sorry asses the risk increases to 50%.

As this is an autoimmune disease having a genetic base, there are no precautions as such that can help prevent its occurrence.

I hope this information will answer your question.

Kind Regards
