Psoriasis Treatment Sarasota FLIf you’re searching for psoriasis treatment in or near Sarasota, Florida, you can turn to the experienced dermatologists at Dermatology Associates. We offer comprehensive care for all of your medical and cosmetic skin concerns. Psoriasis is a skin condition in which skin grows rapidly and builds up, causing areas of scaly skin. It is not contagious, but treatment can help alleviate these symptoms and reduce the effects of flare-ups. There are various types of psoriasis, and treatment will depend on the extent of the condition as well as which type you have:

  • Plaque psoriasis – Patches of red, scaly skin often found on the knees, elbows, and scalp
  • Guttate psoriasis – Small red dots on the skin, which can be triggered by certain illnesses and stress
  • Pustular psoriasis – Red, scaly skin, typically on the hands and feet, that contain pustules (small, pus-filled blisters)
  • Inverse psoriasis – Lesions appear in the skin folds, such as armpits, behind the knees, and in the groin area
  • Erythrodermic psoriasis – Intense, fiery redness of skin that can be widespread and lead to shedding of sheets of scaly skin

Although there is no cure for psoriasis, treatment can help minimize symptoms. Treatment options include steroid creams, retinoids, light therapy, cyclosporine, and biologics. At Dermatology Associates in Sarasota, FL, we can help you understand these options and determine which one may be most appropriate to treat your psoriasis.
