Psoriasis usually manifests as thickened areas of skin on the scalp, elbows, knees, or lower back. Unlike rosacea, which makes the skin turn pink and swell, psoriasis causes skin to become scaly and gray. Psoriasis treatment sometimes mimics acne treatment, as steroids may be prescribed for both. However, a dermatologist may treat psoriasis with topical creams, anthralin, vitamin D, light therapy, retinoids, and biologic agents. Psoriasis treatment is highly effective, and a dermatologist can generally provide relief for the uncomfortable and unsightly symptoms.
