How to Find the Right Psoriasis Treatment for Your Symptoms
Light therapie or topical treatments, everybody reacts different to it. If you are reacting to the sun - so if your condition is getting better in summer you will have a very good chance that UVB- Light treatment with 311nm UVB light will help you.
If you have only little spots - you might just be better off with cream. But you have to try it out for yourself.
What yout try first is up to you and usually depends on the severity of your symptoms. That can be gauged by measuring the body surface area (BSA) that your symptoms affect or by scoring your symptoms on the psoriasis area and severity index (PASI), Saakshi Khattri, M.D., a dermatologist and rheumatologist at Mount Sinai Hospital says.
If 5 to 10 percent of your BSA is affected by psoriasis, you’re considered to have moderate-to-severe psoriasis. Over 10 percent is considered severe psoriasis. (For reference, the size of your hand is roughly one percent of your BSA.)
