Causes and Treatments

Psoriasis is a common skin condition that affects 2-3% of the world population. Psoriasis speeds up the life cycle of skin cells and skin cells build up rapidly on the surface of the skin. The extra skin cells can form red patches and scales, itchy and sometimes painful.

There is no cure for psoriasis but symptoms can be managed. The main goal of treatment is to stop the skin cells from growing so quickly.

Make an appointment with Alaska Family Dermatology and we can discuss how to best manage your psoriasis.
