Psoriasis Treatment & Relief

Psoriasis symptoms can be bothersome since they tend to include itchy skin, scaly skin, red patches on skin, flaking, and irritation. Fortunately, CeraVe has psoriasis products that can help relieve the symptoms of psoriasis and prevent them from recurring. We worked with dermatologists to develop psoriasis treatments, like our psoriasis cream and cleanser, to soothe your skin and provide gentle exfoliation. They contain therapeutic ingredients like smoothing beta-hydroxy acid salicylic acid and alpha-hydroxy acid lactic acid, calming niacinamide, and three essential ceramides to help restore your skin barrier and maintain moisture levels. Non-irritating, fragrance-free, and non-comedogenic, they help make relief from psoriasis symptoms possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that accelerates skin cell growth, which causes inflammation and the buildup of skin cells on the surface of the skin. This buildup can appear as raised “plaques” or scaly skin and, although it can show up on any part of the body, it is most common on the knees, elbows, and scalp (a.k.a. “psoriasis scalp”). It affects men, women, and children of all ages and races.1

  • Psoriasis plaques can manifest as itchy skin, scaly skin, red patches on skin, flaking, and irritation. Most commonly, they appear on the knees, elbows, and scalp (known as “psoriasis scalp”), though they can be present anywhere on the body. Psoriasis can affect men, women, and children of all ages and races.1

  • It’s best to always consult a board-certified dermatologist to diagnose psoriasis and recommend treatments. The first line of defense usually recommended to people with psoriasis are topical psoriasis treatments, such as our CeraVe Psoriasis Cleanser and Psoriasis Moisturizing Cream. Your dermatologist may also prescribe you a stronger topical psoriasis treatment. Oral prescription drugs (known as “systemics”) may also be prescribed. And phototherapy is also used as a psoriasis treatment.2
