Frequently Asked Questions

When can you remove the scaly, flaky skin?

If you have any other type of psoriasis except for plaque, then the scales must be removed with gentle washing, so topical medications can penetrate the skin. If you have plaque psoriasis, it is recommended that you do not remove the scales because bleeding may occur which will actually activate the condition.
