From this study (2 years ago):
I have never had Psoriasis before. I started on Coumadin October 1, 2011, and had the Psoriasis (which was first misdiagnosed)within 6 weeks. The psoriasis is getting worse. One small patch on the side/back of my upper thigh has gone from about 1 cm to over 5 cm in diameter.
