Psoriasis is one of the most common skin diseases, affecting as many as one in fifty adults. In the past, sufferers have had to live with the knowledge that they could suffer an outbreak at any time. However, dermatologists now have a clearer understanding of how treatments work and how psoriasis develops. Therefore, psoriasis treatments are changing, and this updated edition includes information on those new treatments. Informative, compact and easy-to-read, Psoriasis: A Patient's Guide is designed to provide the reader with a complete review of this disorder and the different treatments currently available. Points are illustrated with color photographs, and tables and figures give quick access to information. The book contains ten case studies and concludes with a question and answer section, as well as an appendix of resources worldwide. Both dermatologists and the public will find this text useful.
