Who can forget the advertising tagline "the heartbreak of psoriasis"? It became something of a public joke. Of course, it’s more than a punch line – ask someone who has it – but it can be treated.
Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition characterized by red, often scaly, plaques. The scales are described as thick and silvery and the plaques are generally described by patients as "itchy", "tender" and "ugly".
Psoriasis is not a deadly condition but it can greatly affect a person’s life. Some sufferers insist people do not want to touch them or be near them because they think the condition is contagious. Psoriasis-sufferers often feel that they can’t go out in public, hold jobs where they must be in the public or maintain personal relationships.
Psoriasis can be treated and controlled if not always cleared up entirely. Depending on the severity or extent of the psoriasis, we employ different treatment plans: topical medications, uvb light therapy and multiple systemic agents.
As with all other skin conditions, however, trust the physician who has been trained in the most modern state-of-the-art methodologies.
Psoriasis is a non-contagious, chronic skin condition characterized by red, dry patches of
thickened scaly skin or plaques, and commonly affecting the elbows, knees, and scalp.
