Psoriasis is an autoimmune skin condition that causes itchiness and discomfort. Plaque psoriasis is the most common type. It causes thick, scaly areas of skin. While there isn’t a cure, psoriasis treatment can help manage symptoms.

An outbreak of psoriasis, or a flare up, causes symptoms of psoriasis as a result of contact with a trigger, which could be an irritant or an allergen. Psoriasis outbreaks differ from person to person. Common triggers for psoriasis flare ups include:

Emotional stress.

An infection (streptococcal infection).

A skin injury like cuts, scrapes or surgery.

Certain medications, such as lithium and beta-blockers.

Changes in body temperature due to the weather.

Although psoriasis is not curable but right treatment can lead to long term remission or control in the extent of psoriasis. At Skinzone Clinic, we offer multiple treatments for psoriasis including ointments, medication, injections and lasers. Our patients are in a much better condition after completing treatment than they were before coming to us.
