What is psoriasis, and how can a dermatologist help?
Residents in Schaumburg, Illinois area who suffer from moderate to severe psoriasis know how their condition can impact their lives. Dr. Prashant Singri and his team at Schaumburg Dermatology can evaluate you, provide a definitive diagnosis, and discuss treatment and maintenance options that fit your needs. Many patients choose Schaumburg Dermatology for their psoriasis needs, as Dr. Singri spent much of his time in his two-year research fellowship in the study and research of skin conditions such as psoriasis.
Psoriasis is a condition that can impact one’s overall quality of life, especially if it is severe and unmanageable. It occurs due to a buildup of dead skin cells. Typically, skin cells will flake off in normal skin, and new cells will grow to replace them. However, psoriasis can cause these new skin cells to move upward to the skin’s surface much sooner than normal, resulting in thick red or white skin patches known as “plaque.” This can develop and cause patients embarrassment, causing them to be self-conscious about their skin’s appearance and avoiding certain conditions where skin might be exposed, such as time at the pool outdoors.
How is psoriasis treated?
There are various modalities to determine the best regimen for a patient. It may include topical treatment, phototherapy including excimer lasers, or a combination of systemic medications and biologic therapies.
How much does psoriasis treatment cost?
The cost of psoriasis treatment varies from patient to patient based on various factors, including the severity of the skin condition and the type of treatment selected. We can find a solution for patients with no health insurance and even high deductibles. Talking with Dr. Singri is the first step in learning more about the expected cost of services and the long-term maintenance of psoriasis.
