Searching for a new way to treat psoriasis? Otezla may help

Published on Apr 12th, 2016 by Jeffrey Sobell

Treating psoriasis differentlyOtezla® is the first pill FDA approved to treat psoriasis in over 15 years. Unlike previous oral medication options, Otezla® specifically reduces the inflammation associated with the disease process without affecting any internal organs such as the liver, kidneys or bone marrow. The safety of this therapy has been greatly celebrated; in fact, no routine blood testing is required. Otezla® is indicated for moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis as well as for psoriatic arthritis. At the Psoriasis Treatment Center at SkinCare Physicians, our providers have found Otezla® particularly helpful and attractive in a number of clinical scenarios.

8 clinical scenarios where Otezla® is helpful

  1. Moderate severity psoriasis (psoriasis affecting between 3-10% of the skin surface area) that is not improved with topical medications or phototherapy
  2. Patients with both psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis
  3. Stubborn psoriasis affecting the scalp
  4. Troubling nail psoriasis
  5. Psoriasis affecting the palms and/or the soles
  6. Patients avoiding therapies that can suppress the immune system
  7. Patients who have tried and failed multiple other internal medications, including biologics
  8. Patients who prefer to take a pill over an injection
