Psoriatic Arthritis – Dr. Norman Swan

Psoriatic Arthritis
Psoriatic Arthritis can be affectively treated. Consult your GP or Rheumatologist urgently to get proper diagnosis and treatment..

Psoriatic arthritis is quite a severe complication of psoriasis. Psoriasis is a skin condition. Typically your immune system attacks your skin. But often it can also attack the joints.

And so that’s what it is. You need to see a dermatologist initially to make sure that you’ve got the psoriasis under control. Often the psoriasis drugs themselves can help the arthritis too.

If not, you need to get your GP to send you to see a Rheumatologist about the arthritis part of it.
