How Psoriasis is identified by Doctor?

A physician will assess the affected part of the skin, nails and scalp to figure out your skin condition. To rule out the other possibility, he can order a biopsy test, in which a skin sample is collected for a microscopic observance.

A treatment is intended to stop the growth of the skin cells while minimizing the inflammation, scales and patches. A physician will prescribe topical ointment for mild psoriasis while oral medication is suggested for severe cases.
