There are many different treatment options available for plaque psoriasis. But for the 7.5 million people living with psoriasis in the US, the wide variety of options can make finding the right one even harder.
Finding the right treatment for you should always be a decision made with your dermatologist. That being said, it’s always a good idea to do your own research and go into your dermatologist’s office as informed as possible.
What to consider when thinking about treatments
Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune disease (which means it’s lifelong) that starts inside your body.
Currently, there’s no cure for psoriasis—and as you may know from experience, psoriasis and the flare-ups it causes can be unpredictable—which can make it hard and frustrating to treat. But despite how frustrating it can sometimes be, there are treatments out there that can help manage your symptoms.
Below is a chart that outlines some of the different types of treatment options available for plaque psoriasis. Remember—always ask your dermatologist which could be right for you.
