Question: I have psorisis. How to get rid of that?
Answered by Dr. Rahul Kumar 29 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Treatment based on involvement

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the query.

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder.
It can only be controlled.
There is no medication which can totally cure psoriasis.
It is treated depending upon the extent of involvement of skin.

If only a few patches are there topical medication like proper and clobetasol are used.
If a larger extent of the body is involved then oral medication is used.

I would like to see a photograph of the involved area.
Please upload a photograph here at the reports section.
This will help me in giving a closer diagnosis and better way of management.

Waiting for your response.
Thank you.
