Your treatment options
There are many treatments, so it’s important to talk with your doctor to find the one that’s right for you.
Some options for treatment include:
- Topicals: Medicine used on the skin, such as a cream or lotion
- Phototherapy: Medically supervised artificial light or sunlight therapy, which should be used consistently on the affected skin
- Systemics: Medicine taken by mouth in liquid or pill form, or given by injection, which works throughout the body
- Biologics: These are protein-based medicines produced from living cells that target specific parts of the immune system
