Managing Your Psoriasis

Everyone may experience different signs and symptoms of psoriasis and severity will vary from person to person. Some of the common signs associated with psoriasis include:

  • Red, scaly patches of skin.
  • Dry, cracked skin that can itch or bleed.
  • Itching or soreness.
  • Swollen or stiffness in the joints.
  • Thickened or ridged nails.

The areas that are most commonly affected include the lower back, knees, legs, scalp, palms, elbows, and face. A breakout can range anywhere from small patches to larger areas covered in breakouts. Psoriasis can be dormant for months before a flare-up that can last anywhere from a few weeks to a few months.

When you do experience a flare-up, it’s important to get started on treatments to help keep your reaction to a minimum and stop it from being too irritated and spreading. The treatments your doctor prescribes will depend on the severity of your psoriasis, and you may need multiple different forms of treatment at a time.

A common form of treatment is through corticosteroids. These can be in creams, foams, ointments, lotions, or even shampoos. 

Psoriasis may not be curable but managing your symptoms can make your life a lot easier when a flare-up does happen. Be sure to contact your dermatologist at Gawey Dermatology in Oklahoma City, OK, to learn more about how to care for your psoriasis. Call our office at (405) 951-8711 today.
