“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.
