Psoriasis, how to treat it

Tractament de la psoriasi a Vall d'Hebron

Currently, there are different treatments that can alleviate the signs and symptoms, and, in most cases, cure skin lesions. The dermatology specialist decides the most appropriate treatment for each patient, depending on the type of psoriasis, its location, its extent and severity and the characteristics of the person suffering from it.


There are three types of treatment:

  • Topical. Creams, shampoos and lotions that are applied directly to the skin.
  • Phototherapy. Treatment with ultraviolet light A (UVA) or B (UVB rays), usually administered 2-3 times a week for 2-3 months.
  • Systemic or generalised. Drugs administered orally (pills) or injected. They must be monitored strictly by means of blood tests, to check for possible adverse effects
