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
