Plaque Psoriasis- Topical Cream Study
About Plaque Psoriasis
Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease characterized by raised, red oval plaques on the skin with silvery scales. Lesions are typically painful or itchy and can be associated with a high degree of morbidity. Plaques on visible skin have a particular impact on physical, sexual, psychosocial, and even economic status; associated with reduced levels of employment and income. Psoriasis is more than a superficial disease, with 30% of patients having joint involvement, and a high correlation between psoriasis and obesity, diabetes, depression, metabolic syndrome, and cardiovascular risk.
