Psoriasis Treatment

Psoriasis Treatment Center in New York, NY

Dermatologists at Advanced Dermatology Associates specialize in treating people with psoriasis, a condition in which thick, scaly patches appear on the skin. Often, these patches itch or burn, and without treatment, they may not go away

Suffering from Psoriasis? What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a chronic or long-lasting skin condition that produces extra skin cells. The extra cells form patches and scales that are red in color and are often dry and itchy.

What Causes Psoriasis?

A problem with your immune system causes psoriasis. In a process called cell turnover, skin cells that grow deep in your skin rise to the surface. Normally, this takes a month. In psoriasis, it happens in just days because your cells rise too fast.

Psoriasis can be hard to diagnose because it can look like other skin diseases. Your doctor might need to look at a small skin sample under a microscope.

Psoriasis can last a long time, even a lifetime. Symptoms come and go. Things that make them worse include

Infections
Stress
Dry skin
Certain medicines

Psoriasis usually occurs in adults. It sometimes runs in families.
