The Truth Behind Prescription Psoriasis Treatments

The Truth Behind Prescription Psoriasis Treatments

There are many ways to treat your psoriasis. From over-the-counter (OTC) treatments to home remedies, treatments run the gamut. Prescription medication is one of the most prevalent ways people choose to manage their psoriasis symptoms (from facial plaque psoriasis to scalp guttate psoriasis). However effective, they can have some startling trade-offs of which many aren’t aware. We understand that prescriptions can offer people who experience psoriasis the relief they so desperately want and deserve. At MetaDerm, we think everyone should know the truth behind prescription treatment options and why we felt it was important to develop another option.

Too Much Mess

Topical steroids can give off an awful odor and leave stains on your nails, skin and clothing.

Not Worth the Cost

While covered by most insurances, prescription treatments can still rack up a hefty bill. And for those dependent on these medications, that can lead to a lifetime of large expenses.

Short-term Success

Most medications focus on treating immediate symptoms and flare-ups, rather than preparing you for long-term health. While they can be effective, many do not provide your skin with the daily treatment it deserves and needs to stay healthy in the future.

Hampers Your Immune System

To treat your psoriasis, many meds will lower your immune system in order to effectively manage your symptoms. Depending on the intensity of the treatment, your immune system potentially could be compromised, leading to an increase in susceptibility to sickness.

Be Aware of Side Effect Warnings

At MetaDerm, we understand that prescriptions have helped a ton of people manage their condition. Few people take the time to understand the possible side effects they can experience from these treatments. It’s important to figure out what works best for you. We created MetaDerm to provide a better, natural alternative.
