Effective psoriasis treatments at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology in New Orleans areaBy Dr. Mary Lupo
For patients who believe they are struggling with psoriasis, they must first work with a professional who can provide an effective diagnosis. Dr. Mary Lupo is New Orleans board certified dermatologist who can provide a medical diagnosis with a physical evaluation and with discussion of family medical history and medications. To diagnose psoriasis, lab tests and imaging are not often required.
Once patients get a proper diagnosis of psoriasis, they can then discuss with their dermatologist the best way to medically manage and treat the condition. Treatment of psoriasis may include topical creams, oral medications, light therapy, injections or a combination of modalities.
To avoid breakouts, psoriasis treatment must be done regularly, as well as determining the triggers of the condition. If patients notice more problems with their psoriasis after periods of stress, finding ways to manage it may be helpful in reducing spells of psoriasis. Additionally, some patients may experience psoriasis outbreaks when dealing with a sickness or infection of the body. This is likely because the condition is thought to be linked with the immune system. Patients' diets can also have an impact on psoriasis.
