What Is Psoriasis?
Current research believes psoriasis occurs as a result of problems with the immune system, resulting in skin regrowth occurring too quickly. In its most common form of plaque psoriasis, it appears as patches of dry, raised, and red skin that can be covered with silvery scales. In many cases, these outbreaks are itchy and tender and can occur on various body parts, including the scalp, lower back, knees, and elbows.
In some cases, the dryness can progress until the skin begins bleeding. Additional symptoms can include nail problems and issues with your joints. While the disease is chronic, it goes through cycles of flareups. So treatments are focused on providing symptom relief during these periods.
How Can Psoriasis Treatment Improve Your Skin?
In addition to physical discomfort, psoriasis flareups show up as highly visible patches around your body. While the flareup will eventually pass, the patches of skin can significantly affect how patients feel about their appearance. At MD Skin Science, Dr. Clark offers a range of treatments to help stop the severity of flareups and remove the scaly buildup.
