Psoriasis is a common chronic inflammatory skin condition that is characterized by elevated red patches and flaking silvery scales. These skin lesions vary in size and are known to be itchy and sometimes painful. While lesions can appear anywhere on the body, the most common sites include elbows, knees, chest, scalp and lower back. Affecting over 1 million Canadians, psoriasis can have a lasting negative impact on self-esteem and social confidence.
At Thornhill Dermatology Centre, we are proud to provide medical-grade interventions for effective psoriasis treatment. We provide a variety of psoriasis solutions including oral medications (systemic), topical skincare and trigger avoidance coaching. Our dermatologists provide a clinical diagnosis to ensure the most effective treatment solutions are proposed and reviewed.
