Since psoriasis mainly affects the skin, topical treatments are very useful because they are relatively safe, fairly effective, and can be applied directly to the affected skin. They take the form of lotions, foams, creams, ointments, gels, and shampoos. They include topical steroids, tar preparations, and calcium- modulating drugs. The precise drug used and the form in which it is delivered depends on the areas involved. In widespread disease in patients with more than 10% of the body surface involved, it may not be practical to use topical medication alone.

On average, the overall quality of the evidence was moderate for the three most important comparisons that included corticosteroids (e.g. betamethasone dipropionate), vitamin D (e.g. calcipotriol) and their combination product. We looked for a reduction in the severity of the psoriasis, improvement in quality of life and harmful side effects of the treatments. Most findings were based on short-term therapies with a duration of less than six months.
Understanding the severity of the disease is important for ensuring the best treatment is chosen, particularly for those whose psoriasis fails to respond to topical treatments (those applied directly to the skin rash) like creams and gels. These people need to weigh up the risks and benefits of systemic treatments such as medicines and phototherapy, which can have significant side effects and in some cases require frequent doctor appointments. If the impact of psoriasis is underestimated, the benefits of treatment may also be underestimated in the risk benefit analysis.
