What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition characterized by dry, scaly plaques on the skin. These patches of skin may also become itchy, painful or inflamed. Psoriasis is caused by a disorder in the skin cells that causes them to multiply much faster than normal. The buildup of skin cells causes visible psoriasis symptoms. As a chronic skin disorder, psoriasis cannot be fully cured. Instead, treatment is focused on minimizing psoriasis flare ups and managing the symptoms when flare ups do occur.
How is Psoriasis Treated?
Psoriasis treatment is intended to reduce itching, dryness and inflammation in the affected areas. For patients with minor symptoms, we may recommend topical prescription creams to heal the skin. More severe cases may be able to benefit from oral medications or injectible medications, which stifle the body’s overactive immune response that causes symptoms.
How Much Does Psoriasis Treatment Cost?
The cost of psoriasis treatment at Florida Dermatology Specialists can vary depending on the strategies involved and the extent of treatment needed. In most cases, your treatment may be eligible for coverage by health insurance. During your initial consultation, we will develop a personalized treatment plan and assess your insurance coverage to determine the exact cost of treatment that you will be responsible for.

What Can I Expect from Psoriasis Treatment?
