Chronic Inflammatory Skin Diseases
Psoriasis and Atopic Dermatitis
The most common chronic inflammatory skin diseases include psoriasis and atopic dermatitis. Both diseases are caused by a dysregulation of the immune system, in the skin, which lead increased inflammation causing redness, itching and scaling.
Chronic inflammatory skin diseases can lead to considerable restrictions in everyday life for those affected. Rapid diagnosis and targeted treatment are of high priority. The enormous progress made in immunological research has now led to significant therapeutic improvements for both diseases enabling many afflicted patients to lead a normal life free from the aforementioned burden of chronic skin disease.
Additionally application of medical creams and UV light therapy remain a mainstay for many patients with less severe disease.
