Psoriasis is a common skin condition that changes the life cycle of skin cells. Psoriasis causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin. The extra skin cells form thick, silvery scales and itchy, dry, red patches that are sometimes painful.
Psoriasis is a persistent, long-lasting (chronic) disease. There may be times when your psoriasis symptoms get better alternating with times your psoriasis worsens.
The primary goal of treatment is to stop the skin cells from growing so quickly. While there isn’t a cure, psoriasis treatments may offer significant relief. Lifestyle measures, such as using a nonprescription cortisone cream and exposing your skin to small amounts of natural sunlight, also may improve your psoriasis symptoms.

“I use logic when practicing and try to think outside the box. I always remind myself that much like every fingerprint is different, every patient’s symptom is different and one cannot practice like a robot. We are all humans attempting to stay a little bit longer on the planet. I never assume anything and never take anything lightly. I always try to be patient and listen and play detective with all the clues. Mostly, I realize that I am just a messenger and observe the miracles of healing that come from a higher power.
Every action leads to a reaction is pure scientific thinking but the reason behind the action is unknown. We, humans are only specks on this planet who must recognize the presence of a higher power. As hard as existence is for everyone, it is just that “an existence for a fraction of time” and as much as we come to doctors for answers we must realize that sometimes there are no answers or reason.”
