A doctor who specializes in skin care, called a dermatologist, can be a big help with your psoriasis. He'll be up to date on all the triggers you should avoid, symptoms, and treatments.
When you look for a dermatologist, start by asking your primary care doctor for a recommendation. You can also check with the American Academy of Dermatology, which has lists of specially trained doctors. A nearby medical school is another resource.
