FAQ’s about psoriasis

Is psoriasis curable?

Psoriasis is considered an incurable, chronic skin condition and no definite cure has been found so far. It is not unlike for psoriasis to suddenly resolve and remain in remission, but often the symptoms return. However, most treatments of psoriasis contribute significantly to the suppression of symptoms with large periods of time of remission, significantly improving  patient’s quality of life.

Which medical specialties are involved in psoriasis?

Dermatologists are specialized in the diagnosis and treatment of psoriasis, and rheumatologists specialize in the treatment of joint damage and psoriatic arthritis.

Does exposure to sunlight improves psoriasis?

Natural light has a positive effect on psoriasis, and therefore the condition of most patients improves during the summer. For this reason, ultraviolet light treatments have been developed. The ideal exposure is in regular but short intervals. The use of sunscreen is necessary, whereas overexposure should be avoided as sunburns exacerbate psoriasis.

How long does the treatment last?

Your physician will advise you on the indicated duration of treatment, as it depends on the type of treatment and the type of psoriasis.

If I have psoriasis am I at risk for contracting other diseases?

You can minimize the risk if you consult a doctor and follow the appropriate treatment as soon as the first symptoms appear.
