If you have psoriasis and want to ask for clear skin, there are a number of steps you can take

  • If you do not have insurance, you will need to ask your general practitioner (GP) for a referral rather than contacting a dermatologist directly
  • If you have insurance, you can contact a dermatologist directly

When you have found a dermatologist you think will be suitable for you, contact them over email or over the phone to make an appointment.

Before your appointment

Before your appointment, think about what you want and expect from treatment, and how you can talk to your dermatologist about this

  • Make a list of the ways that psoriasis affects you over the course of a day, week, month or year (this could include physical symptoms, as well as any effects on the way you feel or what you do)
  • If you are on treatment, note down which one as your dermatologist is likely to ask
  • Your dermatologist could help you address any difficulties you may be experiencing, or be able to recommend a change of treatment if needed

During your appointment

During your appointment, try to be as open and honest as possible about your condition and how it makes you feel

  • Be aware that your dermatologist may suggest a variety of new things, so try and keep an open mind
    • Advances in dermatology mean that there may be more options available than ever before
  • Be clear about the expectations that you have for treatment, and don’t be afraid to ask questions

After your appointment

After your appointment, keep moving forwards

  • Schedule a follow-up appointment to discuss your progress
  • Keep track of your progress, including any improvements in your symptoms, how you feel, or your day-to-day life
