Psoriasis Cure

Treatments
Since discovering that inflammation in psoriasis is triggered by T cells, psoriasis research scientists have been studying new treatments that quiet immune system reactions in the skin. Among these are treatments that block the activity of T cells or block cytokines (proteins that promote inflammation). Several of these medications are awaiting approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
 
Laser Light Treatment
Advances in laser technology are making it possible for doctors to experiment with laser light treatment of localized plaques. A UVB laser was recently tested in a study that was conducted at several medical centers. Although improvements in the skin were noted, this treatment for psoriasis is not without possible side effects. In some people, the skin became inflamed, blistered, or discolored following treatment.
