    Psoriasis Treatment BlueControl

    Are you looking for a convenient home treatment for psoriasis? 


    If you have mild to moderate plaque psoriais, most doctors currently recommend topical treatments – mainly ointments such as corticosteroids, vitamin D and analogues. If you have moderate to severe psoriasis vulgaris, your treatment probably involves using ultraviolet light (UVA or UVB radiation) or various systemic pharmaceuticals.


    Many patients find it hard to live a normal life when they have to apply messy ointments and creams several times a day. This means that they end up either applying them less frequently than they should, or discontinuing their psoriasis treatment completely. In fact, it is reported that only 25% of psoriasis patients are satisfied with their treatment.1 Patients perceive the frequent application of ointments to be inconvenient and time-consuming, limiting them in their daily activities. Furthermore, up to 40% of patients are reluctant to take pharmaceuticals.2 In many cases, they are anxious about possible side effects, or they are afraid that the treatment might not work or will require a lot of effort. This can all lead to low compliance,3,4 which means that the treatments are abandoned early or not carried out correctly. Ultimately, this can limit the success of these therapies.
