Over the last 10-15 years, psoriasis has undergone a treatment revolution! Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition that causes a red, scaly rash on the skin. Those with skin of colour often have more thick and scaly areas on the skin that leave dark brown pigmentation on the skin as it clears.
Psoriasis can also affect the nails causing indents and thickening and may be associated with other conditions like arthritis, high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease.
So treating psoriasis really is important in maintaining your overall health.
At Chroma Dermatology, we advise lifestyle changes that can help psoriasis in addition to discussing creams, light therapy and tablets that may be helpful for you. Chroma Dermatology can provide access to top-of-the-range phototherapy technology and new injectable medicines for those with severe psoriasis.
