Psoriasis is a very common skin condition affecting more than 1 million Australians that is often visible as inflammation and silvery scale and has both internal and external triggers and effects.  It is not contagious, curable or a passing itch. It is an immune condition characterised by the development of white or red areas of skin.

About psoriasis

There are two types of psoriasis. The most common is onset as a young adult, usually developing in people who have a family history of psoriasis. It is thought that psoriasis develops in people who have an inherited tendency, but not everyone who inherits the genes for psoriasis will get psoriasis.  Less commonly, psoriasis can occur between the ages of 50 and 60 in people who have no family history of the condition. This type of psoriasis is usually mild and localised.

Treatment for psoriasis

We have been providing support and treatment for all aspects of psoriasis for many years.  Helping patients manage their psoriasis in their daily lives and when they have flares gives us great pleasure, as we help make a real difference in the lives of our patients and develop strong relationships over time.

We encourage you to come in for a consultation with our nurses or therapists, who have had extensive psoriasis training by our dermatologists and are a great starting point for you to find out more about how we can help, without costing anything more than a little of your time.
