Psoriasis is one of my favorite skin conditions to treat because over the last decade there has been a revolution in superb treatments for psoriasis.
Not only are these new "biologic" medications fantastic for clearing the skin entirely, but I feel so confident in their safety.
I always tell anxious patients that I would not hesitate to take any of these biologics myself if I had psoriasis, or recommend them to my family.
The most difficult areas to treat in psoriasis are the scalp, palms, soles, and genitals. The biologics even do a great job on these areas as well. Unfortunately, these meds are still not "cures," but clear skin can certainly be achieved with the many options that are available.
