In brief: Psoriatic arthritis

Your doctor may recommend tumor necrosis factor-alpha (tnf-alpha) inhibitors if you have severe psoriatic arthritis.
These drugs block the protein that causes inflammation in some types of arthritis and can improve signs and symptoms of psoriasis, as well. This group of drugs is the best to treat arthritis caused by psoriasis.
