Psoriasis is a skin condition that affects about 1% of the population. Thick scaly areas on the skin appear because the cells are replacing themselves too quickly. Our providers will not only offer patients treatment options, such as topical creams, oral medication, and biologic agents but also discuss dietary and lifestyle choices that may also be of benefit. Psoriasis can also affect your joints, causing arthritis and can be associated with other health problems. Treatment is not just for the skin since it may help prevent some of these complications.
