What is psoriasis?
Psoriasis is an immune-mediated, genetic disease manifesting in the skin and/or the joints. Psoriasis is common and affects 3% of Malaysians. In plaque psoriasis, the most common type, patches of skin called "lesions" become inflamed and is covered by silvery white scale. Psoriasis can be limited to a few lesions or can involve moderate to large areas of skin. The severity of psoriasis can vary from person to person; however, for most people, psoriasis tends to be mild.

Is there a cure for psoriasis?
There is no cure, but many different treatments, both topical (on the skin) and systemic (throughout the body), can clear psoriasis for periods of time. People often need to try out different treatments before they find one that works for them.

What treatments are the best for me?
The unpredictable nature of psoriasis makes treatment challenging for many people. A wide range of treatments is available. No single psoriasis treatment works for everyone, but something will work for most people. It is hard to predict what will work for a particular individual; however, it is important to be open-minded and willing to work with your doctor to find a treatment that will work for you.
