Living well with psoriasis includes finding a treatment that is suitable for you and your psoriasis symptoms

If your psoriasis is not managed with your current treatment, take time to explore your treatment options and create a plan for talking to your doctor.

Discovering your treatment options

A suitable treatment can help you get to where you want to be with your psoriasis. An important part of finding that treatment is talking to your family doctor or dermatologist about your symptoms and your treatment goals. But before you do, take time to explore and understand different psoriasis treatment options.

Based on your psoriasis severity and your experience with previous therapies, one or more of the following treatments may be appropriate for you:

  • Topical treatments (various prescription and non-prescription options)
  • Ultraviolet light (UVA or UVB)
  • Oral medications (cytotoxic treatments, immunosuppressants, oral retinoid therapies)
  • Biologic therapies, or biologics (interleukin inhibitors, TNF inhibitors)
