A rheumatologist discusses what's being done to help people with psoriatic disease.
Elaine Husni, MD, says as more is learned about the causes, treatments that can control and calm the condition will continue to leap forward.
Psoriasis may not be obvious on skin of color, and it is often mistaken for conditions like eczema, so dermatologists need to look for other signs.
The color of your skin may not only affect the appearance of psoriasis, but your quality of care, too.
Psoriatic disease can affect your whole body, so your team of doctors may include a dermatologist, a rheumatologist, or even an occupational therapist.
