Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your message.

Psoriatic arthritis is a chronic form of inflammatory arthritis. It can develop in people with psoriasis. After an evaluation, your doctor will discuss treatment options with you. Below are some things you can do at home that may help.

Warm compress:
Soothes painful muscles or joints and can help drain skin infections.
Ice pack:
Reduces inflammation and dulls sensation of pain.
Nonsteroidal anti-Inflammatory drugs:
Relieves pain, decreases inflammation and reduces fever.
