Psoriasis creates dry and itchy skin that can be irritating and difficult to manage. Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute offers psoriasis treatment to men and women living in and around Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, and Kendall, FL.
WHAT IS PSORIASIS?
Psoriasis is a very common and chronic autoimmune condition affecting the skin. Approximately one percent of the population is affected by psoriasis, and there is a genetic component. Approximately 30 percent of patients with psoriasis may have a joint disease called psoriatic arthritis, which necessitates effective treatment to avoid permanent joint damage.
TYPES OF PSORIASIS
There are several forms of psoriasis. The most common, psoriasis vulgaris, appears as red patches with overlying silver-white flakes that are found on the elbows, knees, body, and scalp. Other variants can occur in body folds or on the hands and feet, or even following a streptococcal bacterial infection. The fingernails or toenails may also be affected by psoriasis.
