Frequently Asked Questions
What are the symptoms of psoriasis?
Psoriasis primarily causes a particular skin rash. The rash appears as red, scaly, thickened skin and typically occurs over the elbows, knees, and back. There are a number of other subtypes of psoriasis that can have varying symptoms which can include pus filled blisters, fingernail problems, and joint pain.
What causes psoriasis?
Many things can trigger psoriasis, including:
– Drinking a lot of alcohol
– Smoking or inhaling secondhand smoke
– Infections like skin infections or strep throat
– Suddenly stopping oral or systemic corticosteroids
– Cold, dry weather
– Skin injuries like scrapes, cuts, sunburns, and bug bites
– Some medications, such as antimalarial medications, high blood pressure drugs, and lithium
How is psoriasis treated?
For mild cases, using moistening lotions and emollients can help. For flares of symptoms, steroid creams are available that can reduce symptoms, but shouldn’t be used over the long term. Various other topical medications including coal tar, anthralin and derivations of vitamin A and D have some benefit treating psoriasis. Book a video appointment with a PlushCare doctor for an official diagnosis and treatment plan.
Will the doctor be able to write me a psoriasis prescription?
Assuming our doctors deem it necessary to prescribe you psoriasis medication, they will electronically send your prescription to your local pharmacy as soon as your appointment is over, ensuring that you get prompt and efficient treatment.
If your psoriasis is severe, a PlushCare doctor may recommend taking a pill or having injections of medications to control the symptoms. Methotrexate, vitamin A derivatives, and immune system suppressing drugs can be used to combat the condition but come with side effects that can be quite severe.

DR. Allan Marks has helped my daughter two times and we cannot recommend them enough. My daughter has ADHD and can't wait in a waiting room forever. This was the fastest and easiest way to get my daughter diagnosed and pick up a script. One time we used this service when no other doctor was open. Plush care was available! My daughter didn't have to even leave the house in 6 degree weather (would have made her MORE SICK). She had severe sinus infection and Dr. was not only clear and nice but looked up holiday pharmacy hours ahead of time to make sure I could pick up the script in time! AWESOME! 2nd time went just as smooth. Thank you!
Wow. Wow. Wow. This is so easy and quick. I had a cold virus that turned into a sinus infection. I pulled over on my way to a meeting to video chat w a doctor. He was attentive, kind, and efficient. After a few questions, he diagnosed my ailment. The call took less than 10 mins. Prescription was at the pharmacy later that day. I will be a client for a long time. Thank you.
I never review Apps, but this has been the quickest and most convenient doctor experience(s) I’ve ever had. It cost me no more than what I would have paid to visit an office. I’ve had two appointments and one was done in the comfort of my own living room and the second on my break at work. As a full time worker, full time student, and full time mom, the convenience cannot be beat. I met with Dr. Saremi who is very personable and kind. He immediately resolved my reasons for calling during both appointments. He was competent and trustworthy and valued my time. Can’t recommend this enough.
