Is leukodystrophy psoriasis

Psoriasis is not psoriasis, they are two different diseases.
Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that occurs on the scalp and is prone to recurrent attacks, mainly characterized by shiny, greasy and itchy hair, with white flakes that are repeatedly removed and reborn, and is currently treated mainly with medication, such as oral sedatives and anti-itching agents, vitamins, antibiotics when accompanied by bacterial infections, and topical glucocorticoids in severe cases.
Psoriasis is more serious than leukodystrophy and is a chronic recurrent skin disease that can involve any part of the body, characterized by the repeated appearance of multiple layers of silvery-white dry scales on erythematous patches of skin, scratching off the flakes, dotted bleeding, and accompanied by itching, and is also mainly treated with medication and can be supplemented with phototherapy.
