National Psoriasis Awareness Month

National Psoriasis Awareness Month

August 3, 2021

Endless sunny summer days can bring a measure of symptom relief to those with psoriasis. It’s fitting, then, that the month of August coincides with National Psoriasis Awareness Month.

Did you know that as little as 30 minutes of sun exposure each day can ease psoriasis skin symptoms? It’s certainly not a cure-all. Most people with psoriasis will still require at least some type of medication treatment.

Aside from numerous over-the-counter and topical remedies, there are many prescription options available for the 8+ million Americans with psoriasis. Prescribed choices for oral or injection treatment of psoriasis include:

  • Apremilast
  • Retinoids
  • Methotrexate
  • Cyclosporine
  • Hydroxyurea
  • Immunomodulating injectables: Remicade, Cosentyx, Taltz, Siliq, Skyrizi, Otezla, Humira, Stelara, Enbrel
