Variety of treatment options from Psoriasis expert in the Rockville, MD

Psoriasis affects millions of Americans. Patients in the Rockville, MD area who are struggling with this condition often ask what can be done to treat it. Visiting an expert in the area is the first step in getting a proper diagnosis and learning about treatment options.

Diagnosis of psoriasis

Diagnosing psoriasis is often done through a physical examination. Dr. Ron Prussick can assess a patient’s skin to determine the type of psoriasis present. There are several types:

  • Guttate psoriasis
  • Pustular psoriasis
  • Erythrodermic psoriasis
  • Inverse psoriasis

The condition often develops due to excess inflammation. The immune system is overactive and results in the formation of psoriasis on the skin.

Treatment after diagnosis

There are many ways in which it can be effectively treated. Treatment for psoriasis varies greatly on the type and severity of psoriasis. Below are some of the most common treatments:

  • Biological medications – this medication is administered through injections
  • Systemic medications – sometimes, oral medication can control the condition
  • Phototherapy treatments – NBUVB (narrowband UVB) uses light for reduction of areas of psoriasis
  • Topical medications – certain medications can be applied directly to the skin to treat milder cases of psoriasis
  • Laser therapies – laser light can help with the reduction of psoriasis
  • We review diet and lifestyle changes that can help your immune system
