Recent advances in Psoriasis treatment has improved significantly. More tablet treatment are available apart from already existing treatment like Methotrexate, Ciclosporin, Acitretin etc. In recent few years Apremilast( Otezla) has been introduced in managing Psoriasis. Though available in West and commonly used for difficult Psoriasis, it is yet to be introduced to Pakistan.
Injection for Psoriasis is used in the West as well. Dr Ghazanfar has the experience in using Infliximab, Etanercept, Adalimumab, Ustekinamab and Secukinamab.
However before one considers using these injections one has to understand that these medicines will only work till they are injected. After stopping injections Psoriasis returns again.
If you think you can afford such expensive treatment then please consider approaching a dermatologist who has the most experience in using these Biologics in Pakistan. At the moment Dr Ghazanfar Ali is the dermatologist in Islamabad who has the most experience in managing complex diseases and using this modality of treatment with ease.
