Psoriosis is a non-contagious desease that has symptoms such as raised red lesions covered in dead skin cells. Treatments include steroid-based creams and medicines taken by mouth.
Shingles is a virus caused by the varicella-zoster virus, the same virus that causes chickenpox. IF someone has had chickenpox the shingles virus is already inside them. The symptoms are fluid filled blisters and rashes. Treatment includes antiviral medication to reduce pain and duration, also antidepressants, pain medications, and topical creams.
A Dermatologist is the doctor for all of these.
