Psoriasis usually begins in early adulthood or later in life. In most people, the rash is limited to a few areas of skin. In severe cases, it can cover large areas of the body. The rash can heal and come back throughout a person's life.

 

Psoriasis can be controlled in varying ways. We can discuss treatments, therapies and lifestyle changes to help you get your psoriasis under control.

 

To diagnose psoriasis:
  • We examine a patient’s skin, nails, and scalp for signs of psoriasis.

  • Ask whether family members have psoriasis.

  • Learn about what has been happening in the patient’s life. A dermatologist may want to know whether a patient has been under a lot of stress, had a recent illness, or just started taking a medicine.

 

On some occasions we may need to remove a bit of skin, called confirming the diagnosis. By looking at the removed skin under a microscope, we can confirm whether a person has psoriasis and furthermore, determine a best treatment option.
