Treating itch in psoriasis.


PMID 16856675

Abstract

Itch is an important, but underestimated symptom in psoriasis. Many therapies are available for pruritus; however, few are effective for psoriatic itch. Antipruritic therapies that are potentially effective in psoriasis include coal tar products, topical corticosteroids, topical salicylates, menthol and pramoxine, capsaicin, phototherapy, vitamin D analogs, topical immunomodulators, methotrexate, oral mirtazapine, and biologics. Using these therapies can benefit psoriasis patients in the outpatient clinical setting.
