Psoriasis Help

Here's some help for psoriasis sufferers.

Topical creams, even phototherapy often don't work. But, new studies suggest new biologic therapies may help with the this skin disease, according to Dr. Kenneth Gordon with Loyola University. "Now we've had great successes with these medications. The response rates are equal or better to the medications we've had traditionally for treating psoriasis."

Researchers don't know what causes psoriasis. But it appears to be passed down through families. The new study is in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
