Psoriasis Treatments

There is no cure for psoriasis, but it can be controlled with appropriate treatment and avoiding triggers, such as stress. Treatment options for psoriasis include:

  • Using moisturizing ointments and creams
  • Controlled exposure to sunlight
  • Steroid and anti-inflammatory medication
  • Anti-cancer drugs that prevent the growth of skin cells
  • Immunosuppressant agents

Medication may be topical, oral or injectable.
