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.
