Psoriasis is a chronic skin issue that usually goes through periods of remissions and flare-ups. There are multiple kinds of psoriasis. In most cases, people who suffer from it experience scale-like patches and thickened red skin. In some cases, however, psoriasis can also cause other, systemic issues, including joint pain. If you have psoriasis, you will need to see a dermatologist regularly to manage the condition.

Usually, treatment for psoriasis involves some trial and error to find out what combination of therapies provides the best possible symptom control. A combination of topical treatments, light therapies, and injectable medications can help. Most people from psoriasis can limit the number of flare-ups they experience by maintaining a healthy lifestyle and protecting the skin from injuries as much as possible.

If you have psoriasis, the Salt Lake City dermatologists at Swinyer-Woseth Dermatology can help. Schedule your appointment by calling 801-266-8841.
