What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is an autoimmune skin condition affecting nearly 7.4 million Americans every year. This condition, characterized by red, scaly, thick patches of skin is caused by the sped-up process of skin cell production and an overaccumulation of those skin cells. Psoriasis most commonly affects the skin on the hands, feet, neck, and scalp, but it can also affect the skin on the face. Less common types of psoriasis may affect areas like the mouth and nails. Psoriasis can be classified by severity into five different categories, and when diagnosed, may be treated accordingly to help patients live a worry-free life.

How Much Do Treatments for Psoriasis Cost?

The cost of your psoriasis treatments at Suncoast Skin Solutions is going to vary depending on the type of treatment you choose to receive, the extent of treatment needed to achieve your desired results, and your health insurance coverage.

What Causes Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a condition in which the parts of the body responsible for producing skin cells are overstimulated, causing an overproduction of skin cells and a buildup on the skin. The two leading causes of psoriasis include autoimmune and genetic factors. While patients can't cure their psoriasis, there are many different factors that may contribute to flare-ups including alcohol consumption, infection, stress, injuries, and prescription medications.
