Psoriasis can be hereditary and can begin at any age. Often, only topical medications are needed to control psoriasis. I highly recommend topicals over the more toxic systemic treatments. If you have severe psoriasis and cannot control it topically, we recommend that you try alternative therapies first.
Most of the newer injectable treatments cause suppression of one’s immune system. In Dr. Rosen’s opinion, there is a much safer way to treat this disorder. If you would like to try other therapies for your psoriasis, you must be willing to make some dietary changes. Please make an appointment with Dr. Rosen if you are interested in alternative therapies.
