That’s so frustrating!  I would just tell someone that it’s a skin condition and leave it at that.

I would be tempted to be like…. “hmm… I don’t know, but I don’t think it’s contagious…”

There’s no reason that strangers should be commenting on it.  I would either maybe either just say “it’s just psoriasis” and leave it like that if I was in a good mood, or just answer “that’s kind of a personal question” and hope they drop it.

What do they say?  What jerks!  Psoriasis is common enough, I know several people who have it, and I never felt compelled to say something to them about it.  But I don’t care if you’re walking down the street with a glowing red nose like Rudolph, it’s not a stranger’s place to comment on it!  I would come up with a really curt reply that would show them how rude they are being, like if someone said “what happened to your arm!?”  I would reply “It’s psoriasis and it’s none of your business.” Then just turn and walk away.  Or you could turn it around and reply “what happened to your manners!?”

rude person: “what’s wrong with your arm?”

you: “what’s wrong with your parents?”

 

then walk away and let them figure it out.

I don’t remember where I saw the suggestion or what it was for, but I remember reading that one girl would just respond, “That was incredibly rude of you to say.” No further comment needed. Sometimes people just need a wakeup call.

I don’t think asking about poison ivy is as rude.  They might be asking because they know an amazing treatment for it and want to help you.
