Risks of Not Treating Psoriasis
Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that causes thick, red, scaly patches called plaques to develop. These plaques can be itchy, painful, and embarrassing. For many people, having psoriasis means dealing not only with the symptoms, but also with the treatments. These include creams and ointments that can be messy, oral or injectable medications that can be expensive and come with serious risks and side effects, and light treatments that can be inconvenient and time-consuming. And for most people, treatment or prevention of psoriasis flares is a life-long commitment.
