It depends on how extensive the psorasis is. Mild psoriasis can often be
treated topically. We use topical steroids or vitamin D products. Psoriasis which is more extensive, we can add ultraviolet light–
Ultraviolet light suppresses the immune reaction in the skin. For more persistent, extensive or troublesome psoriasis, there are
these medications called systemic drugs. The traditional ones would be methotrexate
cyclosporine, and Vitamin A. We are at the start of this revolution of these drugs called
biologics which are very targetted. They try to block the lymphocytes–the white cells–talking to other lymphocytes,
and it’s proving to be a very exciting time in psoriasis.
