Psoriasis Treatment FAQ
Can a Dermatologist treat Psoriasis at DermCafé?
Absolutely! Psoriasis has many characteristic features that can be safely identified on photo submission. It is also one of the most common and treated conditions in dermatology
What are the symptoms?
Dry, thick, and raised patches on the skin are the most common sign of psoriasis. These patches are often covered with a silvery-white coating called scale, and they tend to itch.
Why treat psoriasis?
Psoriasis can dramatically affect a person’s quality of life, from unwanted skin thickening to severe skin flaking to the potential inflammatory effects it can have on other parts of your body (e.g. joints). Treatment with the right medical creams or oral medications can provide your skin and general health with relief and restore it to its healthy state
How is it treated?
No treatment can cure psoriasis, but the right treatments can control it. Your DermCafé dermatologist will create a treatment plan tailored to your needs which may include medical creams (e.g. Dovobet ointment) and/or oral medications when necessary.
