What are the Best Treatment Options for Psoriasis?


Who should I consult for psoriasis treatments?

It’s best to talk to a doctor who focuses on and is well trained in all things skin-related, which is a dermatologist. Even better is a derm who specializes in psoriasis. He or she will know the ins and outs of this condition, treatment options, side effects, and more.

Can you cure psoriasis?

Unfortunately, there is no cure for this chronic condition. But the treatment options are extensive. With the help of your doctor and a little trial and error, you can find the one that helps you manage your psoriasis and live a full life with this disease.

Are the same treatments used for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis?

There are some treatments—like certain biologics and oral medications—that work for both conditions. However, it’s best to consult a rheumatologist for your psoriatic arthritis since rheumatologists specialize in all types of arthritis.

How will I know if my psoriasis treatment is working?

Treat-to-target goals help patients and doctors gauge treatment effectiveness. The goal is for your psoriasis to cover 1% or less of your body in three months. If that’s not the case, you and your M.D. can reevaluate your plan.
