A CHRONIC CONDITION

Psoriasis Atlanta, GA

Psoriasis Atlanta, GA, MetroDerm, PC

Psoriasis skin disorder is a chronic autoimmune skin disorder that causes thick scaling and crusting of the skin. The growth cycle of the skin cells escalates, and the mature cells accumulate rather than being shed, which results in a build-up of raised, scaly patches. The most commonly affected areas are the scalp, elbows, knees, hands, genitals, and feet. There are different types of psoriasis and each presents particular symptoms and sometimes can display as other skin disorders. A biopsy may be performed to confirm the diagnosis of the condition so a treatment plan can be initiated. Treatment can be successful but may require a maintenance protocol of medications.

Psoriasis varies widely among affected individuals and can appear all over the body, typically developing on the elbows, knees, scalp, and lower back, but it can also appear on your eyelids, ears, mouth and lips, skin folds, hands, feet, and nails. Raised, red patches covered with a silvery white buildup of dead cells is a telltale sign of the condition. In addition, the condition has been linked to some serious health conditions, including psoriatic arthritis, which causes joint pain and stiffness. At MetroDerm, P.C. we understand that everyone’s skin characteristics differ, and a specialized treatment approach to eliminate your symptoms is warranted to minimize risk for psoriasis associated disease and your overall health.

Patients who suffer from this condition should avoid using household products that can irritate the skin like fragrant detergents, fabric softeners, and dryer sheets. In addition, many daily activities contribute to the stripping of natural body oils, which leads to excessive dryness. Dry skin only intensifies psoriasis; pass up hot showers and baths, and only use gentle cleansers, and moisturizers.

Each patient is unique; therefore, results of treatment may vary.

TESTIMONIALS

“Dr. Neckman came highly recommended by my wife, and I was a little nervous on my first visit. She made me feel very comfortable and almost like a sister was looking out for her brother. She explained everything very well and took care of me with speed and compassion. Couldn’t recommend a dermatologist more.”
Tony M.
“I’ve been a patient of Dr. Garvey for a little more than six months. She has provided me relief from a serious varicose vein issue. I couldn’t be happier or more impressed with her knowledge, skill, and bedside manner. She has my highest recommendation. Her nurse, Eulene, and office manager, Chris, are also wonderful. Thanks to Dr. Garvey and team!”
Al G.
“I have always had the best of care from Dr. Niren. I’ve been going to her since 1986, and I have nothing but praise for her professionalism and the time she spends with me.”
Debbie J.

“Dr. Pearl and her staff are amazing. I can’t speak highly enough about them all.”

Christye N.

“I’ve been Dr. Kim’s patient for over 10 years and she is amazing! I recommend her to everyone and am grateful for the care and compassion she has shown me. Unfortunately, because of my skin, I see her a lot, but she makes visits and procedures as stress free as possible.”

Tara F.
“Dr. Berghoff has been my doctor for years and has identified and repaired significant skin issues on several occasions that could have resulted in serious health issues. I always leave his office feeling like I know what my skin health is!”
John P.
“I have been going to Dr. Alford for several years. She is great! She is so pleasant and listens to any concerns you may have. She is thorough and professional. I always look forward to seeing her. If you’re looking for a great dermatologist, I highly recommend Dr. Alford.”
Robyn C.

“Dr. Papadopoulos did a wonderful job on my recent surgical procedure on my arm. He made me feel at ease and explained everything to me in terms that I could understand. He was precise and succinct during the surgery, and my recovery could not have gone any smoother. I highly recommend Dr. Papadopoulos for any and all skin cancer surgery.”

Martha R.

“Dr. McClure has no peer in his field. Apart from his incredible skill as a surgeon, he is also wise and compassionate, too. He knows when it’s the right thing to do nothing. I would not be alive today were it not for his treatment of my melanoma years ago. My wife and I trust him more than any other doctor whom we have ever known.”
