Psoriasis is a skin disease in which red patches covered with silver or white colored dry skin scales appear on different parts of the body. There are two age groups that are mostly affected 20-30 years age and then another peak comes at 50-60 years of age for most patients. Psoriasis typically affects the skin of head (scalp), elbows, knees and lower back areas but may spread to other parts of the body as well. The skin lesions (red and scaly patches) are usually painless and do not itch, but they may be itchy in some patients. For most patients they are cosmetically unacceptable and a source of embarrassment and depression. Fortunately, in most patients the disease is limited to small portions of the skin like scalp only, whereas in other patients the skin may be involved extensively involving most of the body surface area. In some patients joints may be involved with the disease causing psoriatic arthritis. The good news is that with the latest advancements in the treatment of this disease, most patients get better only with topically applied creams and lotions. For those who have very extensive disease and cannot apply medications to large surface of the skin or who suffer from psoriatic arthritis, many other options exist. Narrow Band Ultraviolet B has emerged as the gold standard for extensive psoriasis and is very convenient and extremely safe. In this form of treatment patient’s skin is exposed to violet colored light called as ‘Narrow Band Ultraviolet B’ or ‘Narrow Band UVB’ by using our state-of-the-art special equipment made by Daavlin USA, which is the exact same equipment used at the best centers in the United States.
