Medical Dermatology : Psoriasis

Up to 7.5 million Americans have psoriasis. Psoriasis has been a physically and psychologically devastating disease for many patients. However, we have made great strides now with a lot of treatment options which we never had before. These include biologic medications such as Enbrel (etanercept), Humira (adalimubab), Amevive (alefacept), and Raptiva (efalizumab). New topical medications are available in foam and spray forms which are more easily applied on the skin. Oral medications such as methotrexate and Soriatane are available for the right patient. Finally, a lot of patients even with mild skin psoriasis may be suffering from psoriatic arthritis, which also responds to a great many of the treatments mentioned above.

More information is available at the National Psoriasis Foundation.
