New Hope with the Use of Advanced Science and Expertise Knowledge
Psoriasis is a chronic, autoimmune disease that appears on the skin. A sometimes life altering disease, psoriasis is estimated to impact 7.5 million Americans. It occurs when the immune system sends out faulty signals that speed up the growth cycle of skin cells. Normally, new cells take about a month to move from the lowest skin layer where they're produced, to the outermost layer where they die and flake off. With psoriasis, the entire life cycle takes only days. As a result, cells build up rapidly, forming thick silvery scales and itchy, dry, red patches that are sometimes painful. There are several forms of psoriasis including plaque psoriasis, scalp psoriasis, nail psoriasis, guttate psoriasis, erythrodermic psoriasis, pustular psoriasis, and psoriatic arthritis. As there are several forms of psoriasis, there are also several psoriasis treatments. At his La Jolla practice Dr. Gonzales will work personally with you to select the optimal treatments.
For some people, psoriasis is just a nuisance. For others, it's disabling, especially when associated with arthritis.
