There are many treatments available for it. They start with reviewing over the counter moisturizers and skincare routines. Keeping skin clean from bacteria with high quality, hydrating moisturizers to help soften the skin are important. Reviewing one’s diet to make sure healthy fruit and vegetables are included in combination with a regular exercise routine can greatly help clear it.
When these measures are not enough, topical steroids and other prescription creams are used to achieve clearance. For more extensive disease treatment options include ultraviolet light and oral medications such as methotrexate and cyclosporine can be utilized.
There are many new drugs that are helping those with it achieve excellent clearance as well. These drugs (biologics) are the newest of the medications developed for psoriasis. These new drugs include Humira (Adalimumab), Stelara (Ustekinumab), Cosyntex (Secukinumab), Taltz (Ixekizumab), and Skyrizi (Risankizumab). They are given as injections that you administer at home and have specific antibodies targeting the inflammation system that causes psoriasis. While they are very powerful and effective medications, they do have potential risks and side effects that should be discussed in detail with your doctor to see if they are appropriate for you.
