Psoriasis is an autoimmune condition that causes red,
scaly, often painful plaques on the surface of the skin. It can be especially
irritating, and even take an emotional toll, if your psoriasis is considered
moderate or severe. Thankfully, treatment for psoriasis has come a long way in
the last 15 years with the introduction of biologics, a type of
genetically-engineered medication that targets specific components of the
immune system. Today, there are more options than ever before. If your current
medication isn’t doing the trick, ask your doctor about other options. Here are
four reasons you may want or need to try a new psoriasis medication.
