In brief: Treating psoriasis

There's no cure for psoriasis, but there are many ways to treat it.
Treatment depends on severity and location. There are medicated shampoos and liquid or gel medications for the scalp. To[pical steroids and vitamin d products (dovonex, vectical) and tar are used on most body areas. Ultraviolet light helps many people. Internal meds like methotrexate, soriatane, enbrel, etc. Help severe psoriasis.

In brief: See a dermatologist

Psoriasis is a chronic disease that cannot be cured, but there are some treatments that can be very effective in limiting symptoms.
These drugs must be prescribed by a dermatologist (or rheumatologist if you have psoriatic arthritis).
