Having plaque psoriasis is physically—and sometimes, emotionally—painful. The good news is that plenty of treatment options exist. Plaque psoriasis is the most common type of psoriasis, a skin condition that causes red and silver thick, scaly patches of skin.
How Do Dermatologists Treat Plaque Psoriasis?
There is no cure for psoriasis. But there is almost always a treatment option that can help, Adam Friedman, MD, a professor of dermatology at George Washington School of Medicine and Health Sciences, told Health.
Suppose that after seeking treatment, you're still experiencing symptoms and flares of your moderate-to-severe psoriasis. Still, a healthcare provider isn't offering you another option. That should be a warning sign to you, explained Dr. Friedman.
"We know under-treatment is a problem," added Dr. Friedman.
