Suffering From Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a non-contagious but annoying skin disease. This condition causes red, flaky patches of skin that look unpleasant and are sometimes itchy or painful. It can also cause unsightly nails and even joint pain in hands and feet. Fortunately, we can treat psoriasis—or at least its symptoms—well in most cases.
How do you get psoriasis?
Psoriasis is very common in both men and women. It is not contagious but has to do with hereditary predisposition. Many people with psoriasis already know it from their family circle. If the predisposition is present, psoriasis can come on spontaneously, or as a result of a wound or infection, due to drugs or stress.
The dermatologist sees many cases of psoriasis in his practice and will therefore usually recognize it immediately. When in doubt, the doctor may take a small skin sample to investigate this further.
We can treat psoriasis in a variety of ways. Depending on how much it bothers you, this can be done with a medicated cream, ointment or liquid. In addition, there is the option of UVB light therapy. And finally, there are drugs in tablet form. At U-Clinic it is good practice to first discuss the treatment in detail with you, so that we can decide together which form of therapy best suits your condition and your lifestyle. By properly informing you, we put the reins of your treatment in your own hands.
