Watch on Demand: Managing and Treating Psoriasis

Written by Torrey Kim
Posted on August 13, 2021

“It used to be that when you had psoriasis, you just learned how to live with the condition. You don't have to do that anymore — psoriasis can be fully controlled at this point.”

Dr. Raja Sivamani shared this important insight during MyPsoriasisTeam’s live Q&A on August 12, 2021, when members of the psoriasis community had a chance to learn more about managing and treating the condition.

Dr. Sivamani joined MyPsoriasisTeam Co-Founder Eric Peacock to answer questions on whether diet and exercise can help reduce psoriasis symptoms, what new treatments are on the horizon for the condition, and whether mindfulness plays a part in controlling psoriasis.

Check out a few more key insights that Dr. Sivamani discussed during the live Q&A:

  • How you can reduce the symptoms of scalp and nail psoriasis
  • The differences between the various types of psoriasis
  • Whether long-term medication use for psoriasis can lead to side effects
  • How to know when to see a specialist for psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis
