Psoriasis is a skin condition that is lifelong once you get it and usually occurs in adults. It causes thickened, scaly, red skin over certain parts of your body and can also affect your joints. Psoriasis is thought to be an autoimmune condition, but the exact cause is unknown. It is very treatable with a variety of medications that can be prescribed by a doctor.See our FAQs
Check Your Symptoms
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.

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.
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.

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.
