Ruzicka T For more extensive psoriasis, a useful option is ultraviolet (UV) light exposure. UV light can treat large areas of skin with few side effects, if performed in the physician's office. It should be kept in mind that all UV light causes mutational events, which can lead to skin cancer. At this time, the most popular type of UV light for psoriasis is called narrow-band UVB. Only a small portion of the UV light spectrum is used, which seems to be particularly beneficial for psoriasis and may be less carcinogenic. This UVB is quite different from the UVA, the wavelength available in tanning salons, which is not effective in psoriasis. Phototherapy can be used alone or with medications when treating psoriasis.

Alcohol “First and foremost, stop drinking,” Bagel says. Here’s why: Alcohol opens the blood vessels in the skin. When your blood vessels are dilated, white blood cells, including the T cells that are believed to be responsible for psoriasis, can sneak into the outer layers of your skin more easily — and you don’t need to be inviting more T cells. “Your psoriasis symptoms may worsen even if you’re a light to moderate alcohol user,” warns Chelsea Marie Warren, RD, a certified wellness coach in Portland, Oregon.

To assure good stewardship of medical resources, biologics should be used only in patients who need them, and appropriate incentives should guide treatment among the available options. Because of the rapid turnover of patients among insurance providers, a short time horizon may be more appropriate to assess the relative cost-effectiveness of home phototherapy versus biologics. The purpose of this study is to estimate and compare the cost of home phototherapy versus biologics over a 3-year time horizon in patients with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis.

However, it can cause side effects, so the prescribing doctor should perform regular blood tests. Another medication of this type is cyclosporine.
