After Ours Inc Blog

Psoriasis can be a real pain in the… skin. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! At AfterOurs Urgent Care, we understand the struggle of managing psoriasis symptoms. We’re here to provide the information and laughter you need to keep your skin looking and feeling great.

Symptoms of Psoriasis

Before we dive into management options, let’s talk about what to look out for. The symptoms of psoriasis can vary from person to person, but some common ones include red, scaly patches on the skin, itching and burning, and even joint pain. If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms, it’s important to seek medical attention right away.

Medication Options

When it comes to managing psoriasis, there are several medication options to consider. Topical treatments, like creams and ointments, can help soothe and reduce inflammation on the skin. For more severe cases, oral or injectable medications may be prescribed to target inflammation at the source. At AfterOurs Urgent Care, our experienced medical staff can help determine which medication is best for you.

Laughter is the Best Medicine

While medication is a critical component of psoriasis management, humor can be just as important. Research shows that laughter can help reduce stress, which in turn can help reduce psoriasis symptoms. So go ahead, watch that funny cat video or tell that corny joke – it might just be the medicine your skin needs.


Psoriasis may be a chronic condition, but that doesn’t mean you have to suffer in silence. At AfterOurs Urgent Care, we’re here to help you manage your psoriasis symptoms with medication and humor. Don’t be afraid to reach out to our experienced medical staff for guidance and support – we’ve got your back (and your skin).
