LIKE IT IS
Being open and honest with your dermatologist about the impact your moderate to severe plaque psoriasis has on you can be tough. But remember, you and your doctor have the same goal: results you can see – so you can achieve clearer skin.
Let’s talk about talking to your dermatologist
The first question most doctors ask at your appointment is “How are you?” It’s important to have a response prepared, so you can start off with a clear focus. Having a response ready will increase your chances of achieving the goals of your visit. Be ready to share the following with your doctor as soon as you can during your visit:
- Describe the change in your moderate to severe plaque psoriasis (Is it spreading? Is it getting worse?)
- Emphasize the extent of coverage (Let the doctor know exactly where your plaque psoriasis is)
- Discuss the impact your plaque psoriasis has had on you
