What are some of the treatments for psoriasis? The skin symptoms of psoriasis are more likely to improve spontaneously (without treatment) in summer, compared to other times of the year. However, the psychological effects of the condition may be worse during summer due to the need to expose more skin in warm conditions. Because skin rash is a highly visible symptom, it is difficult to hide from other people during summer. However, exposing the skin can be embarrassing and lead to stigma and discrimination.

The BELIEVE study compared adalimumab with or without Ca/BMD ointment (applied to body, not scalp) in a randomized, controlled safety and efficacy trial. Patients with baseline scalp psoriasis had more severe disease and were slower to respond initially compared to patients without, but this was no longer significant by week 8, at which point the majority of patients had achieved a PASI-75 response and continued to improve by week 16. PSSI responses correlated with PASI responses. The median PSSI score in patients at baseline was 14, at week 8 was 1, and at week 16 was 0. By week 8, 75.6% of patients had achieved a PSSI response (PSSI ≤4) and by week 16, a median decrease from baseline of 100% (mean 77.2%±96.9%).50 Can tea tree oil help treat psoriasis?

Research and Reports in Gastroenterology Open Access Journal Catheter associated urinary tract infections Studies directly comparing the effects of vitamin D analog monotherapy with very potent or potent steroid monotherapy consistently demonstrate the superiority of corticosteroids for the treatment of scalp psoriasis. A recent analysis of such trials revealed that corticosteroids provided approximately a 10% improvement in average scores compared with calcipotriol on a six-point global improvement scale (Investigators Global Assessment of Improvement).18 In addition, vitamin D derivatives take longer before an optimal improvement can be seen, approximately 8 weeks, as compared with only 2–3 weeks for corticosteroids.39 Given the efficacy of both corticosteroids and vitamin D analogs in the treatment of psoriasis, it is not surprising that combination products have been developed and have quickly become a favored medication in the treatment of scalp psoriasis.

The plaques are usually red, smooth and shiny. There is very little or no scale, due to the presence of sweat, which moistens the keratin (dead skin cells) and prevents scaling. Painful superficial skin cracks or tears (fissures) sometimes occur in skin creases. A yeast-like fungal infection (candida albicans) can also develop, due to the naturally warm moist environment found in these areas. American Journal of Ethnomedicine Appearance of biotechnological therapies has revolutionized the treatment of psoriasis, but patients who do not respond to these drugs (primary inefficacy) continue to exist, as well as patients who respond initially but lose the response with continuity of treatment (secondary inefficacy), patients who respond, but don't reach the desired magnitude of response (partial response) and patients who have to discontinue treatment due to safety reasons (intolerance or toxicity), these being the four reasons for inadequate response to a biological agent.27 Retention rates or persistence rates in a given biological agent are thus very useful in assessing the "added value" of therapy in daily clinical practice, since, on the one hand, they reflect the proportion of patients with adequate response and, on the other, provide data on effectiveness, since in clinical practice the effectiveness may be different from that obtained in clinical trials.28-29 Donald Glover postpones his Childish Gambino concert in Los Angeles after breaking his foot Fans had waited to see if he would cancel
