Soriatane is typically used for treating a variety of types of severe psoriasis. Psoriasis are a chronic skin condition that causes inflamed red patches with silvery scales. Soriatane is best used when milder forms of psoriasis treatment have failed. In severe cases, the skin can thicken and form painful, pus filled patches that eventually crust over. These patches can form almost all over the human body. While psoriasis can appear anywhere on the body, they typically occur on the chest, back, elbows, knees, feet, hands, scalp, and fingernails. While Soriatane cannot permanently cure psoriasis, it can keep it under control and keep outbreaks on the skin manageable.
