Dermatologist Dr. Bharat Chawda's  Response

Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

Psoriasis is a chronic problem,but that doesn't mean that it has no remedy.Every day we see such patients and I always say that it is like having diabetes ,which cannot be cured completely ,but should be controlled so as to prevent complications.Even in psoriasis ,it is so,it should be kept under control ,so that you don't get any complications.If left untreated ,it can lead to erythroderma (involving whole body) and even it can involve joints (psoriatic arthritis).Erythroderma is a fatal condition and arthritis is a painful condition to have.It can also involve scalp and nails .

So,it is always advisable that one takes proper treatment for psoriasis and not neglect it.

There are lot of safe and effective treatment available for the same right from medicines to phototherapy (light therapy-PUVA & NBUVB).

Please consult a good dermatologist at any hospital(preferably) who can start your proper treatment.
