Psoriasis

Effectively Manage Itching, Burning, and Inflamed Skin in the Denver Area

Patients who suffer from psoriasis have an overactive immune system that causes skin cell production to rapidly accelerate, leading excess skin cells to accumulate and form red elevated scaly patches. More than eight million Americans live with this chronic, inflammatory, autoimmune disease. At AboutSkin Dermatology in Denver, psoriasis treatment is not only possible, but also personalized. Though there is no cure, symptoms can be managed.

Flare-ups typically occur in cyclical phases. Common signs and symptoms include raised, red patches with thick white or silvery plaques; skin dryness; inflammation; cracking; bleeding; and swollen joints. Scalp psoriasis is common, as are patches on the knees and elbows. The cause of this typically life-long disorder is not fully understood, but genetics, environmental factors, and the immune system are thought to play a role in its development. A variety of treatments, including topicals and systemic therapies, can be used to clear up the skin once it manifests. AboutSkin physicians also offer the latest biologics (biological drugs) by injection to help treat psoriasis.

Many patients want to know about psoriasis vs. eczema—another chronic skin condition. The AboutSkin medical dermatology team can help distinguish between these two conditions and offers education to help anyone with questions about their skin health.
