Psoriasis explained

Psoriasis is caused by a faulty immune system. The immune system triggers excessive skin cell growth, causing large red and white areas of plaque to form on the skin. These areas can become inflamed, itchy, and uncomfortable – while also greatly affecting one’s appearance. Areas of psoriasis can be embarrassing for those who have it.

Options for treating psoriasis

The first step in treatment of psoriasis is an evaluation to determine the type of psoriasis. There are many types and a thorough examination and discussion of family and medical history can help the doctor plan treatment. Patients with mild cases of psoriasis may see improvement with the application of topical treatments, while other patients with more severe cases may want to consider oral medications, phototherapy treatments, and other options.

Addressing conditions such as psoriasis is important to improve the health, condition, and appearance of the skin.
