Psoriasis is a common chronic inflammatory skin condition usually characterized by red elevated patches and flaking silvery scales. Symptoms can range from mild to severe. While it is not known exactly what causes psoriasis to develop in certain individuals, experts believe that the condition may involve malfunctioning of the immune system and the consequent production of inflammation. There are a number of topical, oral and biologic options for the treatment of Psoriasis that can be discussed during your visit to our clinic. A referral from your family physician is required first.
