4 reasons to see a dermatologist for chronic moderate to severe plaque psoriasis (PsO)
If you have a lifelong condition like plaque psoriasis, it’s important to see a dermatologist who specializes in psoriasis. Your family doctor can refer you to a dermatologist who:
Has advanced knowledge of plaque psoriasis
Understands which medicines can treat plaque psoriasis from inside the body, rather than just treating the skin symptoms
Sees many people who have symptoms of plaque psoriasis
Can help make sure you’re getting the medicine that’s best for you
Be sure to ask the dermatologist if ENBREL is right for you and your condition.
You play an important role in the discussion
It’s important that you help your dermatologist understand how severe your plaque psoriasis is and how it may be affecting you. Before your next appointment, ask yourself:
How much plaque psoriasis do I have on my skin?
Am I getting the results I want from my current treatment?
Do I have any joint pain, stiffness, or swelling?
See why this is important.

- Am I ready for a biologic like ENBREL?
- What are the possible side effects of ENBREL?
Refer to the ENBREL FAQs as you think of any questions before and after your appointment.
