Dermatologists at NYU Langone specialize in treating people with psoriasis, a condition in which thick, scaly patches appear on the skin. Often, these patches itch or burn, and without treatment, they may not go away. Some people also experience painful, swollen joints, a condition called psoriatic arthritis. These conditions can appear in people of any age.
Our dermatologists recognize that psoriasis can affect your quality of life, especially if it affects skin in highly visible or sensitive areas such as the face, hands, scalp, or genitals. They partner with you to make treatment decisions and help you manage psoriasis for the long term.
Our dermatologists create customized treatment plans based on your symptoms, health, and treatment goals. They may recommend light therapy or medication. Our specialists also offer biologic medications that many people find relieve their symptoms effectively.
