Skin psoriasis treatment is variable, there are different ways to prevent it from spreading, however, it is solely dependent on the location. For instance, on the elbow or the knees? Psoriasiselbow_Linia_Skin_Clinic3

We specialise in providing psoriasis treatment in London. If not treated correctly, psoriasis can be linked to the development of arthritis. Psoriasis is often thought of as contagious, however this is not correct. In fact, psoriasis is neither contagious or the result of an allergy, it is more closely linked to being an inherited trait passed down amongst generations, however, the environment plays an important role too.

Some other causes of psoriasis include:

  • Overactive immune system
  • Throat infection
  • Injury
  • Stress
  • Alcohol
  • Smoking

Skin psoriasis treatment

Admittedly there is no permanent cure. We can supply medicated shampoo if it affects your scalp- this will reduce any itching, preventing the spread of the condition. Other alternatives include vitamin D and salicylic acid – but if you need a more severe solution, our oral treatments are possibly more suited to you!
