Medication for Plaque Psoriasis
Plaque Psoriasis is a type of skin condition where patches of dead cells are found on the skin. These patches are also known as plaque and are usually white in colour, itchy, and tend to flake off.
The condition is caused by T-Cells, a type of white blood cell, attacking healthy skin cells. Typically, this means that most treatments will attempt to target the immune system.
Topical products, medications, and phototherapy are three of the most common ways to treat plaque psoriasis.
Topical creams and ointments used to treat plaque psoriasis usually contain corticosteroids, salicylic acid, or anthralin. They can be purchased over the counter or prescribed by a doctor depending on the severity of your condition.
