PSORIASIS: DIAGNOSIS, TREATMENT & PROGNOSIS
HOW IS PSORIASIS DIAGNOSED?
A dermatologist London is in the best position to determine whether it is psoriasis or not. To ascertain the diagnosis of psoriasis, our dermatologist will carry out the following:
- Examine the patient’s skin, nails, & scalp for signs of psoriasis.
- Take history by asking whether any of your family members have psoriasis.
- Enquire about past events in the patient’s life. The dermatologist London might be interested in knowing whether a patient has undergone a lot of stress recently had an illness, or recently commenced the use of certain medications.
The dermatologist may sometimes need to remove a bit of skin to confirm the diagnosis. By taking a look at the scrapped skin under a microscope, he can easily confirm whether a person has been affected with psoriasis.
