Psoriasis Treatment

Psoriasis is a skin condition in which skin cells proliferate up to ten times faster than normal. This causes the skin to develop rough red patches covered in white scales. They can form everywhere, but the majority of the time they appear on the scalp, elbows, knees, and lower back. Psoriasis cannot be passed from one person to the next. It does happen occasionally among members of the same family.

How Psoriasis treatment works?

Fortunately, there are numerous therapies available. Some inhibit the formation of new skin cells, while others ease irritation and dry skin. Your doctor will recommend a treatment plan based on the extent of your rash, where it is located on your body, your age, your overall health, and other factors. Typical treatments include:

  • Creams containing steroids.
  • Tar from coal (a common treatment for scalp psoriasis available in lotions, creams, foams, shampoos, and bath solutions).
  • Dry skin moisturisers.
  • Vitamin D cream or ointment.
  • Creams containing retinoids.

Cost of Psoriasis Treatment

The cost of Psoriasis treatment depends on the condition of your skin and the reason for your Psoriasis.


Nobody can contract psoriasis from another. Skin-to-skin contact is not a viable method of transmission, and you cannot "catch" it from an infected individual. It won't make you more likely to have psoriasis if you physically touch the skin that has the condition.
