Dr. Saurabh Lodha
This was my first appointment with a dermatologist and it was a lot less scary than anticipated! Dr. Lodha is full of knowledge and little facts that will make u want to treat your skin with more respect. He did not lecture yet he explained and I was very thankful for that. I would recommend anyone to go and see their new office – it’s great Dr. Lodha, was very reassuring about my concerns. He was also very explicit and caring about the small procedure he was performing. He was very thorough, gave me as much time as I needed, responding to my questions thoroughly. I highly recommend Dr. Lodha...

Psoriasis Treatment

Psoriasis is an auto-immune skin disorder in which certain areas of skin become inflamed and the skin cells consequently turn over faster. Because of this, people with psoriasis have thicker skin in areas which flakes and can even bleed. The involved areas can be itchy and irritating or not cause symptoms. It is a condition which causes general inflammation in the body as well which can increase the risk for systemic diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, obesity, high cholesterol, heart disease and stroke. Psoriasis can also involve the joints directly and this occurs in roughly 1/3 of psoriatic patients.

The condition is not contagious and has a large hereditary component. Although it often skips generations.

Symptoms of Psoriasis

  • Bumps and areas of raised red skin that may cause painful itching.
  • Disorders of the fingernails and toenails. Followed by discoloration of the nails.
  • Scales or crusty skin along the scalp.

Psoriasis Treatment
The treatment of psoriasis has changed dramatically over the past 5 years and continues to change and improve. Newer medications can finally give patients completely clear skin.

Depending on the severity of the involvement treatments range from topical to oral to injectable medications. Liquid forms of topical medications can also be injected locally to help persistent areas of disease.

Generally, treatment is multifaceted and for more information on treatment options or to schedule a consultation, be sure to contact us today.
