Bacterial & Fungal
Skin offers resistance to infection by bacteria and fungi, but sometimes infections do occur. As with all things in dermatology, the key to overcoming the infections that do occur is customized treatment based on accurate diagnosis.
Psoriasis is more of an inflammatory immune system disorder rather than a skin disease. It is partly genetic and partly environmental, and affects the skin, joints, nails, hair follicles, and cardiovascular system. With advances in medicine, psoriasis is more treatable than ever before.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, nearly 7.5 million people in the US suffer from psoriasis.
Newer treatments for psoriasis are quick and easy to administer. Where older treatments were often intensive and sometimes unpleasant including extensive coal tar application, newer psoriasis treatments are safer and more effective.
We treat psoriasis in four ways. Topical products can be applied to affected areas to help control localized flare-ups. Ultraviolet light can be delivered to the skin surface to control extensive areas of flare-up, like around the hands and feet. Oral medications can also be taken to help control psoriasis. Methotrexate is the most popular oral medicine. Biologic therapy for treating psoriasis consists of protein compounds or antibodies that alter immune function to control psoriasis. Biologic agents are generally considered the safest and most effective psoriasis therapies.
Determining the right treatment for you takes into account the way you live as well as your preferences. CK Derm knows psoriasis and is ready to help.
