Psoriasis and You

Psoriasis is a common skin condition where increased inflammation causes skin rashes that are thick and scaly. Dr. Riahi wants to educate you about some other associations.

1. Increased risk of heart attack: patients with psoriasis have an increased risk of heart attack. Make sure you have a PCP or Cardiologist who is monitoring your blood pressure and overall health.

2. Chronic: psoriasis tends to be life-long for most people. You need to find a treatment plan that gives you a long-term solution.

3. Joints and nails: Psoriasis can cause joint problems and nail problems.

Dr. Riahi takes psoriasis seriously. Come visit us at our Sugar Land location if you need any help with skin issues!
