Psoriasis is characterized by red, itchy and scaly patches on the skin, it can also affect scalp, hands and feet, and nails. At University Hospitals, our dermatology specialists treat psoriasis using a variety of methods, including topical, oral and biologic medications, as well as light therapy.
Arthritis and other Co-Occurring Conditions
People with psoriasis are at an increased risk for developing co-occurring conditions, including arthritis and cardiovascular disease. If left undiagnosed and untreated, some of these conditions can become serious and progressive. Our team of dermatologists and other clinicians can coordinate with your providers to continue to monitor co-occurring conditions to optimize your overall health.
