If you have psoriasis, you may have other health problems, too. The itchy skin rash is caused by an issue with your immune system. White blood cells that usually fight infection get activated by mistake, and that triggers inflammation. People who have psoriasis treatment seem likely to have other conditions linked to inflammation like heart disease, diabetes, obesity, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and metabolic syndrome.
Mild or moderate psoriasis usually is treated with medicines you put on your skin. These probably won’t have any effect on most other health issues. But if your psoriasis is severe, you may need drugs that change the way your immune system works. Your doctor should know about any other health problems you have and any medicines you take.
Weak Immune System
If your natural psoriasis treatment infection-fighting system is weak because of certain diseases (such as HIV) or medications (such as chemotherapy), it can be dangerous to take drugs that affect your immune system. Those include cyclosporine, methotrexate, biologics (drugs made from living cells), and systemic drugs (ones that work throughout your body).
