Psoriasis

Psoriasis treatment in High Point, NC

Psoriasis is sometimes mistaken for eczema. The difference with psoriasis is that it can involve the joints as well as skin, nails and scalp. While there is no found cure for psoriasis, there are many new treatment options available to make the patient’s life more comfortable.
Medical research has yet to uncover the cause of psoriasis, a skin condition that can even lead to arthritis. Psoriasis is excess in skin cell production, which can appear as an inflamed, red, scaly patch in the following areas:
  • Elbows 
  • Genitals 
  • Knees 
  • Scalp
Psoriasis is not contagious but it is chronic – this means that treatments can only serve in minimizing the frequency and size of outbreaks and help in any discomfort the patient feels.
There are several types of treatment we can recommend for Psoriasis at our clinic in High Point, NC, including:
  • Creams and ointments
