Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that can cause physical and emotional stress. Psoriasis can be associated with serious health conditions such as heart disease, arthritis, diabetes, and depression; therefore, accurate diagnosis by a board certified dermatologist is important. Psoriasis forms scaly plaques on the skin in areas such as elbows, knees, buttocks, and scalp.
Treatments include topical and systemic therapy. Our providers at The Center for Dermatology offer the most up-to-date treatment options which are customized for each individual patient. Dr. Dena Howell specializes in the treatment of severe plaque psoriasis.
