This is a common condition that appears as a lasting and scaly rash. Psoriasis tends to be hereditary but can also be caused by environmental factors. Other related causes include stress, infections, injury, hormones and medications.
There is no cure for psoriasis but treatments can make the disease easier to live with. Our dermatologist’s aim is to manage the disease so that there is as little discomfort as possible.
After treatment there may be post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation. Please see the Pigmentation page for more information.
