Psoriasis is a chronic skin disorder characterized by raised lesions with silvery-white coating that most often occur on the scalp, elbows knees and lower back. Potentially associated with other serious health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease and depression, psoriasis can affect more than the skin.
According to the AAD Psoriasis is a life-long disease.
Most people who get psoriasis have it for life. That’s true no matter what type of psoriasis you have, with one exception. Some children who have guttate (gut-tate) psoriasis see their psoriasis go away.
Because psoriasis tends to be a life-long disease, it helps to learn about it and see a board-certified dermatologist. A bit of knowledge and help from a board-certified dermatologist can give you some control over the psoriasis. By gaining control, you can see clearer (or clear) skin. Gaining control can also help you to feel better, improve your overall health, and prevent the psoriasis from worsening.
Schedule your private consultation with one of Coastal’s board-certified dermatologists and take control of your skin condition today.
