For moderate to severe psoriasis that involves much larger areas of the body (>10% or more of the total skin surface), topical products may not be effective or practical to apply. This may require ultraviolet light treatments or systemic (total body treatments such as pills or injections) medicines. Internal medications usually have greater risks. Because topical therapy has no effect on psoriatic arthritis, systemic medications are generally required to stop the progression to permanent joint destruction. Special treatment needs for subtypes of psoriasis are described above. 2University of California at San Francisco, San Francisco, CA, USA De Berker DA, Lawrence CM.

After bathing, an appropriate moisturizer should be applied while skin is still damp, to help prevent moisture loss. Hair makes the treatment of scalp psoriasis especially challenging. Vehicle formulations play a large role in patient satisfaction and adherence. Shampoos provide patients with an easy, non-messy treatment option, either alone or in combination with other therapies. Few studies have evaluated the actual efficacy of these preparations, reporting shampoos have a modest, at best, effect on treating psoriasis of the scalp.15 There are some studies available that support the use of coal tar shampoo, containing 2%–10% coal tar solution, in scalp psoriasis;16,17 however, no double-blind studies are available to support this practice and many patients do not find tar shampoos cosmetically acceptable. Salicylic acid shampoo, due to its keratolytic effect, has also been used to enhance the penetration of other topical medications including corticosteroids, and has been recommended by The National Psoriasis Foundation as a first-line therapy.5 However, a recent Cochrane review of clinical trials on scalp psoriasis found no evidence to support the first-line use of a tar-based shampoo, with or without a keratolytic such as salicylic acid.18 Alternatively, clobetasol propionate (CP) shampoo 0.05% has been proven to be highly effective for scalp psoriasis. This formulation has been found to be both safe and efficacious for the initial treatment phase of disease, as well as maintenance therapy to prevent disease relapse once a patient has achieved remission with other topical or systemic therapies (see Topical corticosteroids).19–21 I've had scalp psoriasis for as long as I can remember. My parents tried many different treatments, from coal tar-based products to corticosteroids. None of them worked very well and some stunk horribly! The attributes were separated into 2 groups to avoid information “overload ” during the CA exercises.32 The first group included (1) magnitude of benefit, (2) duration of benefit, (3) probability of AEs, (4) AE severity, (5) AE reversibility, and (6) cost. The second group included (1) probability of benefit; (2) treatment location, frequency, duration, and delivery method; and (3) cost. Cost was included in both groups to verify internal consistency and to allow later comparison between groups. The hypothetical treatment scenarios were designed using commercially available conjoint analysis software (http://www.sawtoothsoftware.com). Of the 4096 (4   ×  4   ×  4   ×  4   ×  4   ×  4) treatment scenarios possible for each group of attributes, 12 pairs of scenarios were randomly selected by the software for each respondent. The random selection of scenario pairs was used to minimize possible bias associated with the order in which the scenario pairs were presented (Table 2). Respondents were asked to choose their most preferred treatment option (ie, the utility maximizing option) from each pair of treatment scenarios. Utility is the net benefit an individual would derive from a treatment option, assumed to be based on the option's attribute levels and the sum of their associated “part-worth ” utilities.28 6600 SW 92nd Ave, Suite 300 1-702-714-7001Extn: 9040 youthhealthtalk.org healthtalk.org There are several different types of psoriasis. Many people have only one form at a time, although two different types can occur together. One form may change into another or become more severe.

However, stress can make psoriasis worse, and psoriasis can make one stressed. Dealing with stress with or without psoriasis is a challenge for most people living in the 21st century.

Ointments or solutions are typically applied at night and washed off in the morning. Coal tar products can be used in combination with topical corticosteroids or with exposure to natural or artificial broad-band UVB light (280 to 320 nm) in slowly increasing increments (Goeckerman regimen).
