A Patient’s Guide to Psoriasis

Aug 19, 2014

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that causes skin cells to grow rapidly. The extra cells cause scales and red patches to develop on the skin, which can be painful. There is no cure for psoriasis, but there are many things your dermatologist can do to help you control the symptoms. One of the first things your dermatologist will do is determine which kind of psoriasis you have. There are several different forms, and while most people only experience one kind at a time, patients may develop different types at different points in their lives. Once you’re diagnosed, your dermatologist may prescribe topical creams, oral medications, or light therapy—or a combination of these treatments—to manage your outbreaks. In this infographic, Arlington Dermatology details what every patient needs to know about psoriasis. Help psoriasis sufferers everywhere take control of their disease by sharing this information
