Fall brings many cherished things: holidays and pumpkin spiced flavored everything. However it can also bring heightened psoriasis symptoms due to cooler, dryer weather; unless you fly somewhere tropical for the next couple months, it’s hard to avoid these conditions. Thankfully, you have Collins Advanced Dermatology Institute on your side with skin care tips to help relieve psoriasis symptoms.

First things first, take a look at your wardrobe. Keep your bottom layers of clothing soft and breathable. Abrasive materials like wool can irritate your skin.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Sometimes, you have to work from the inside out. Drinking plenty of water every day will help prevent your skin from drying out.

Evaluate the products you are using.  Using a gentle cleanser that does not contain soap, like NeoStrata, will ensure that you are not over drying your skin. Same goes with your moisturizer; use a thicker moisturizer for an extra layer of protection.

Don’t be a stranger; schedule a visit to see us! We can find a psoriasis treatment for you based on your age, health, and lifestyle, your type of psoriasis, its location and severity. Common treatments include topicals, oral/systemic, and phototherapy.

We have two locations to service your needs, schedule a visit today online or by calling 512.379.6090.
