Psoriasis Treatment

Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin condition. It is characterised by defined, red and scaly plaques (thickened skin). There are several subtypes of psoriasis.

It affects 2-4% of males and females and may start at any age. The severity of the psoriasis will fluctuate.

The usual presentation is of symmetrically distributed red, scaly plaques that have well defined edges. The colour of the scale is usually a silvery white except in skin folds where they appear shiny.
