From the publisher. This book offers a plain-speaking introduction to psoriasis: the nature of the disease and treatment options. Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory but noncontagious skin disease that affects as many as 1 in 50 adults, making it arguably the world’s most common skin disorder. It can appear at any age and can affect relationships, the ability to work, and the ability to enjoy leisure activity. In this second, revised, and fully updated edition, Langley presents a detailed look at this all-too-common problem. In clear and accessible language, he offers insight into the nature of the disease, potential treatments, and their relative benefits and risks—information that will enable patients to achieve a substantially better quality of life.
