What Are Pustular Psoriasis Treatment Options?
Patient Comment Read 1 Comment
People with the generalized form of pustular psoriasis are occasionally admitted to the hospital to make sure they have adequate fluid intake and bed rest and don't lose too much heat or have too much strain on the heart. Bland compresses are applied to the patient's skin, and saline (saltwater) solutions and oatmeal baths help to soothe and heal affected areas. In children with pustular psoriasis, this treatment is often all that's needed.
There are two basic types of treatments for psoriasis: (1) topical therapy (drugs used on the skin) and (2) systemic therapy (drugs taken into the patient's body). All of these treatments may be used alone or in combination.
