Dermatologists who have authored particularly useful content regarding psoriasis management are highlighted on the Psoriasis Doctors Website.
For instance, Eliot Mostow, M.D., a dermatologist in Akron Ohio, published information about the use of topical medications for the treatment of psoriasis.

Both handouts appear on Psoriasis Doctors for patients seeking psoriasis care information from skin care experts.
