Psoriasis

Medical research has yet to uncover the cause of psoriasis, a skin condition that, in extreme cases, can cause arthritis. Psoriasis is an excess in skin cell production, which can appear as an inflamed, red, scaly patch in the following areas:

  • Elbows
  • Genitals
  • Knees
  • Scalp

While psoriasis is not contagious, it is chronic – which means that the treatments available can only serve to minimize the frequency and size of outbreaks, and aid I any discomfort you might feel with current outbreaks.

There are several types of treatment we can recommend, including:

  • Creams and ointments
  • Oral medication regimen
  • Phototherapy
