Treatment and management of psoriasis

Yaso Shan Medical writer and Health consultant, Vinings Natural Health Centre, Haywards Heath, West Sussex, UK

Psoriasis is a complex, lifelong condition requiring effective treatment and management. Conventional treatment options have been beneficial and continue to be part of any treatment rationale. New and emerging drug treatment options are proving useful, but some serious side effects and adverse events result in poor compliance and poor adherence to the treatment regimen. Complementary and alternative-medicine therapies, and natural remedies such as herbal medicines, may be favoured by some patients who want to adopt a holistic approach to managing their symptoms.
