Understanding Oral and Injectable Treatments for Psoriasis
If you have a more severe form of psoriasis, medicines taken by mouth or injection can help bring your condition under control. This is called systemic treatment because it works inside your body.
The oral medicine cyclosporine helps psoriasis by “quieting” your immune system. It can be very effective if you have difficult-to-treat psoriasis of the skin and nails. If you take this medicine, you’ll need to have your kidneys and blood pressure checked regularly.
