Welcome to White Pebble Dermatology practice, where our team of experienced professionals is dedicated to helping you achieve healthy, clear skin. One of the most common skin conditions we treat is psoriasis. Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune disorder that affects the skin, causing red, scaly patches to form. These patches can be itchy and uncomfortable, and can even lead to joint pain and inflammation in some cases.
Psoriasis can affect people of all ages and can appear anywhere on the body, including the scalp, elbows, knees, and even the nails. There are several types of psoriasis, including plaque psoriasis, guttate psoriasis, pustular psoriasis, inverse psoriasis, and erythrodermic psoriasis. Each type has its own unique set of symptoms and can require different treatment approaches.
At our dermatology practice, our team of specialists is well-equipped to diagnose and treat psoriasis. We understand that living with psoriasis can be challenging and our goal is to help you manage your symptoms and achieve clear, healthy skin.
The most common treatments for psoriasis include:
Topical medications: Creams, lotions, and ointments that are applied directly to the affected area to reduce inflammation and irritation.
Phototherapy: A treatment that uses light to slow the growth of skin cells, reducing inflammation and itching.
Oral medications: Prescription pills that work to suppress the immune system, reducing inflammation and slowing the growth of skin cells.
Biologic drugs: A type of medication that targets specific parts of the immune system to reduce inflammation and skin cell growth.
Lifestyle modifications: Changes to your diet and exercise routine can help manage psoriasis symptoms and improve overall skin health.
Our team of dermatology specialists will work closely with you to develop a customized treatment plan based on your specific needs and skin type. We understand that psoriasis can be a frustrating and uncomfortable condition, but with the right treatment approach, it is possible to achieve clear, healthy skin.
