Skin Care and Diseases

The Psoriasis Clinic in the University of Cincinnati’s Department of Dermatology

According to the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, between 5.8 and 7.5 million people in the United States suffer from a chronic skin condition called psoriasis. The patients who have this skin condition can visit the Psoriasis Clinic in the University of Cincinnati's Department of Dermatology, where they can meet with NetWellness expert Dr. Pranav Sheth. Dr. Sheth, who specializes in the treatment of psoriasis, provides his patients with access to a number of treatment options, ranging from traditional to investigational therapies. Traditional and newer oral and "biologic" parenteral (subcutaneous, intramuscular and intravenous injection) therapies are available as medically indicated. Ultraviolet light therapies including broad and narrow-band UVB and topical and oral PUVA are available at the Phototherapy Center to complement the therapies available. Finally, investigational therapies in psoriasis are offered through the Dermatology Clinical Research Center for mild, moderate and severe psoriasis throughout the year. The Psoriasis Clinic also offers free lectures about psoriasis, in order to educate the Cincinnati community about the chronic skin condition. For more information or to make an appointment, please visit the Comprehensive Psoriasis Treatment Program's website.
