Work together with your doctor

You have experience with how plaque psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis affects you. Your dermatologist has experience with treating chronic skin conditions, but can also screen joint pain, stiffness, and swelling, similar to a rheumatologist. Whether you see a dermatologist, or a rheumatologist, or both, it's important to work with your doctor(s) to create a treatment plan that’s right for you.

When partnering with your doctor, conversation is key. It’s helpful to be open and honest with your doctor so you can work as a team toward your goals. Here are a few things to get the conversation started:

Talking to your doctor about plaque psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis

  • How much does plaque psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis affect your daily activities?

  • Which parts of your body are affected by plaque psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis?

  • How much time do you spend managing your psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis each day?

Consult with your doctor

  • What can you do to improve your skin or joint symptoms?
  • What treatment options are available?
  • What are the benefits and risks of each treatment option?

Ask your doctor if SKYRIZI could be right for you

  • Could treating plaques and joint symptoms beneath the surface help?
  • Could it help you achieve the results you are looking for?
  • How long could the results last?
