Conventional therapy has been tested with
clinical trials. The FDA has approved conventional drugs for the treatment of psoriasis. Some look to alternative therapy , diet changes, supplements, or stress reducing techniques to help reduce symptoms. For the most part, alternative therapies have not been tested with
clinical trials, and the FDA has not approved dietary supplements for treatment of psoriasis. However, the
National Psoriasis Foundation does discuss some other therapies on their Web site. Individuals should check with their doctors before starting any therapy.
Complications may include the following:
The von Zumbusch type (with fever and toxicity) can cause death if it is not treated during the acute phase. The heart or lungs may fail and cause death, but this usually only happens in untreated people. Older people with the von Zumbusch type have a poor prognosis.
Occasionally, acute respiratory distress syndrome can complicate generalized Psoriasis Pustular . People who have typical psoriasis before they experience a generalized pustular episode tend to do better than people with unusual forms of psoriasis before the pustular flare-up.
Children tend to recover well as long as serious skin infections are avoided.
