Plaque Psoriasis (cont.)

When to Seek Medical Care

It is prudent to see a physician to confirm the diagnosis of psoriasis when the disease begins. The physician can provide helpful suggestions on how to minimize exacerbations of the condition and treatment options. In minimal disease, over-the-counter medications may be sufficient to control the condition. In more severe, extensive, and perhaps debilitating disease, physicians have a variety of treatments that can lessen the manifestations of psoriasis.
