Psoriasis Treatment in Kenya

Psoriasis is a common skin condition that speeds up the life cycle of skin cells. It causes cells to build up rapidly on the surface of the skin. The extra skin cells form scales and red patches that are itchy and sometimes painful.

Common Psoriasis signs and symptoms are Red patches of skin covered with thick, silvery scales, Small scaling spots (commonly seen in children), Dry, cracked skin that may bleed, Itching, burning or soreness, Thickened, pitted or ridged nails and Swollen and stiff joints

Psoriasis patches can range from a few spots of dandruff-like scaling to major eruptions that cover large areas.

Psoriasis is a chronic disease that often comes and goes. The main goal of treatment is to stop the skin cells from growing so quickly.

We do diagnosis through Physical exam of examining your skin, scalp and nails or through Skin biopsy by taking a small sample of skin (biopsy) and examining it under a microscope to determine the exact type of psoriasis and to rule out other disorders

We offer Psoriasis treatments to reduce inflammation and clear the skin. Treatments can be divided into three main types: topical treatments, light therapy and systemic medications.
