According to the American Academy of Dermatology, psoriasis is a chronic condition that causes the body to make new skin cells in days rather than weeks. Cells can pile up on the surface of the skin resulting in thick, scaly patches known as plaque psoriasis. Plaque psoriasis is the most common type of psoriasis which affects 80-90% of people with psoriasis. Plaque psoriasis appears mostly on the knees, elbows, lower back, and scalp.

Understanding Psoriasis Causes

  • Stress: Stress can cause psoriasis to flare up either for the first time or existing psoriasis.
  • Genetics: Psoriasis runs in families. If someone in your family has psoriasis then you have a higher risk of getting it.
  • Skin Injuries: Psoriasis can appear in places where the skin has been injured.
  • Medications: Certain medicines will trigger psoriasis and make it worse.
  • Weather: Fall and winter can make psoriasis flare-up because of the dry air and colder temperatures.

Treating Psoriasis

Psoriasis treatments reduce inflammation and help clear the skin. There are several topical treatments used for psoriasis. These include corticosteroids, coal tars, and Dovonex. Also, phototherapy or light therapy is used to expose the skin to controlled amounts of natural sunlight and oral or injectable medications.

First time ever at a dermatology office! So I was a little nervous... But they have a very friendly staff and it was nice meeting PA Joel! Felt comfortable and he was informative & made me feel like I wasn’t the only person dealing with my issue. I can’t wait to see some results and get some relief!!

Eve L.

Love this place! Everyone is so caring, and very helpful in each way possible. Highly recommend this place for skin care and even skin cancer!

Detlef K.

I’ve been going here awhile. I’ve got a few pesky issues, some due to my not allowing areas to completely heal, sins that prolongs my already glacier like speed healing! I really appreciate Dr. Kayal and Joel who combine to take of me and my family.

Michael V.

Was greeted upon my arrival, very nice waiting room, was taken back immediately. Very professional, caring and friendly staff. They want to help you. The PA Joel was very knowledgeable and knew exactly how to help me. I was given a prescription to address the problem. Will be back with other issues, keep up the good work.

Lisa W.

PA Brown is very attentive to my son's needs. I have not had any difficulty getting appointments when needed. I think this practice provides excellent service. I definitely recommend Kayal Dermatology for all of your skin needs.
