We see a lot of advertisements about psoriasis on the television and the Internet. We have a lot of patients that come to our office, thinking that the rash they have might be psoriasis. In reality, most rashes are not psoriasis, but these advertisements have made us very aware of the specific type of rash called psoriasis.

 

Psoriasis is a condition where the bodies immune system is producing too much inflammation in the skin. It is a form of an auto immune disease but instead of B cells creating antibodies, it is the T cells in the skin that are overactive. This inflammation causes a thickening of the skin and skin cells that do not want to fall off easily. This creates a thick white scale surrounded by red inflammation. If you try to remove the scale, it often creates pinpoint bleeding. Psoriasis often develops in areas of trauma like the knees, elbows, scalp, and knuckles. It can be very itchy and cause emotional distress because of its appearance.

 

We don’t know all the factors that contribute to psoriasis. We know genetics plays a role. It is made worse with smoking and poor diet. Ultraviolet radiation found in sunlight weakens this inflammation and improves the appearance of psoriasis. We often see less psoriasis in the summer because of the sunlight.

 

Fortunately, we have a lot of excellent treatments for psoriasis. Generally we start with a topical medication, and there are several to choose from. If more treatment is needed, there are several oral treatments available, which are effective and safe. For the more severe cases we use injectable medication’s called “Biologics.” These medications are actually antibodies directed towards specific inflammatory mediators. By removing the inflammation, we calm the whole process down. These medicines are also safe and very effective.

 

If you think you may have psoriasis, please call us to schedule an appointment with one of our knowledgeable providers. We can help you get your skin looking at best!

TESTIMONIALS

"Megan Bovero gave me excellent care. She addressed all of my concerns with caring professionalism. She did not make me feel in anyway uncomfortable. I would highly recommend her and Northern Utah Dermatology."

"Visited Northern Utah Dermatology yesterday with Dr Daniel J Hansen. Had a great visit in which I learned much about brown spots and what to look for as far as pre-cancer lesions. Dr Hansen is very easy to talk to and very knowledgeable. Was so happy with my prognosis and the very professional office personnel. What a fantastic up beat appointment. I'll be back for sure!"
