Welcome to XXXXXXX
Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease. It has no known cause. The tendency toward developing psoriasis is inherited in genes. It is not contagious. It gets better and worse spontaneously and can have periodic remissions (clear skin). It is controllable with medication.Psoriasis is currently not curable. The treatment is only symptomatic.
Psoriasis is a life-long condition that can be controlled with treatment. It may go away for a long time and then return. With appropriate treatment, it usually does not affect your general physical health.
Dermatologists specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of psoriasis, and rheumatologists specialize in the treatment of joint disorders and psoriatic arthritis. Many kinds of physicians may treat psoriasis, including dermatologists, family physicians, XXXXXXX medicine physicians, rheumatologists, and other medical doctors.
It will be better if you see dermatologist first after examination, if required he may refer him to rheumatologist.
Hope I have provided the information you needed.
Wish you good health. Take care.
