What Is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder that affects millions of Americans. There is no cure for the disease that impacts the color of your skin, but Dr. Darst can help you control the condition. If you have psoriasis, your body produces new cells much faster than it sheds old ones. Therefore, the new cells accumulate on your skin, causing red patches. The problem is most evident on the back, knees and elbows, but it can occur anywhere on your body.

For the most part, psoriasis is hereditary, so if a close relative has it, you have an increased chance of developing it, too. If you have psoriasis, stress, certain medications, internal infections, and injuries can lead to an outbreak.

How Is Psoriasis Treated?

Psoriasis can be managed using medications and a strict cleansing routine when an outbreak occurs. Dr. Darst can guide you in how to best manage your psoriasis and lessen the chance for a recurrence.
