As August is ending, Dr. Sheryl Clark, dermatologist in Upper East Side New York, encourages patients to learn more about psoriasis and how to properly manage this skin condition.

Psoriasis is a skin condition that creates red patches of skin with white, flaky scales. It most commonly occurs on the elbows, knees and trunk, but can appear anywhere on the body.
Psoriasis is a persistent and chronic disease. Symptoms can often improve, but can also go into remission alternating with times it may worsen. For some people psoriasis is just a nuisance, but for others it is disabling. While there is no cure, Dr. Clark is available to provide appropriate treatments that may offer significant relief of symptoms.
Dr. Clark is also uniquely aware of the association of psoriasis with other inflammatory conditions, including Crohn’s disease, arthritis, heart disease, stroke and metabolic syndrome. She can assess your rash for any of these conditions. Dr. Clark is interested in supplements and lifestyle choices that reduce inflammation and help you to live a long and vital life.
