Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic disease that appears on the skin. It occurs when the immune system sends out faulty signals that make new skin cells grow too quickly. With psoriasis, the normal cycle of skin cells, which usually takes about a month, is sped up to a cycle that is completed in just a matter of a few days. The body does not shed these excess skin cells, so the cells pile up on the surface of the skin and ‘plaques’ form. The two characteristic features of psoriasis are: excessive skin cell growth and inflammation.

There are many types of psoriasis. The most common form, plaque psoriasis, appears as raised, red patches covered with a silvery white build-up of dead skin cells. Psoriasis can occur on any part of the body. 

Here are some examples of psoriasis. Identification of psoriasis should be made by a trained professional, so if you are worried that you could have psoriasis then it is worth a visit to your GP or a dermatologist.

Each person’s experience of psoriasis will be different. Some people will experience only the mildest physical symptoms, with occasional patches and itching, for others the physical symptoms can be much more severe. Similarly the emotional impact affects people differently.  

Psoriasis is one of the most difficult skin conditions to treat. If you have had psoriasis for a number of years you will probably have already tried a vast number of treatment options. Some may work a bit, others not so well. You may have even given up looking for a solution, deciding instead to just grin and bear it.

 
 

Daivobet® gel

Don’t lose hope, try Daivobet® gel, the once-a-day treatment that works.

It’s an easy way to treat psoriasis, without the need for multiple applications and multiple treatments. Unlike many other psoriasis treatments which can be thick and greasy, Daivobet® gel is absorbed quickly and is easy and fast to apply.

When a flare-up occurs, you only need to apply Daivobet® gel once a day with many people experiencing an improvement within 2 weeks.

Daivobet® gel combines calcipotriol (which treats overactive skin cells) and betamethasone dipropionate (relieves redness, swelling and itching). Daivobet® gel is alcohol free and can even be used in areas where there is hair. Better still, it’s fully funded in New Zealand.

Daivobet® gel benefits

  • Only once a day application 
  • Easy and fast to apply on body and scalp
  • It has a specially designed formulation that works in two ways to reduce inflammation and to treat the scaling associated with psoriasis
  • Fully funded.

How do you get Daivobet® gel?

Daivobet® gel is a prescription medicine, so you will have to talk to your GP or dermatologist to see if it is right for you. Even if you have asked before, it is worth asking again about newer treatments such as Daivobet ® gel. If your doctor is unfamiliar with Daivobet ® gel, then it is ok to ask them to research it for you.

Daivobet® gel is fully funded in New Zealand, so all you will need to pay for is your usual doctor’s fee and a dispensing charge at the pharmacy.

 
 

Talking to your doctor

Although you may have discussed your psoriasis with your doctor in the past, it may be worth opening up the discussion again. It is likely that they will have heard of Daivobet® gel, but if they are not familiar with it, you can request that they look into it for you.

A visit to the doctor can go faster than you expect, and it can sometimes be hard to remember everything you want to talk about. Here are some tips that can help make discussing psoriasis with your doctor a bit easier.
