        When are tablet treatments used?

        For more severe psoriasis (covering more than 10-20% of the skin surface) or for psoriasis that has not been helped by topical or ultraviolet light treatments, tablets may be required.

        Tablet treatments are usually necessary for psoriasis that interferes with daily activities such as hand psoriasis or foot psoriasis. Psoriasis affecting the nails and unstable psoriasis may also require tablet treatment. 

        Some patients with arthritis of the joints related to their psoriasis can benefit from tablets.

        What tablet treatments are available for treating psoriasis?

        While tablet treatments can help reduce or clear more severe psoriasis, these medications must be carefully monitored by your dermatologist. They work by suppressing the immune system. 

        How do I know if tablets are suitable for my psoriasis?

        Not all people with psoriasis will need tablets. Prescription medication is limited to the patients who fail to respond to creams, phototherapy, & lifestyle changes/ diet. Your specialist practitioner will inform you if you are suitable for tablets and will take the necessary time to discuss treatment options with you.

        Do vitamins and supplements help?

        Zinc, selenium, vitamins such as A, B, C, D and E, fish oil, herbal products have been reported to treat psoriasis. If you are keen on these formulations, speak to our health food shop retailer or your homeopath. Supplements may be of benefit in some cases of psoriasis.
