Despite dramatic advances in our therapeutic armamentarium for managing psoriasis with pills and biologics, topical therapies remain the most commonly used arrow in our therapeutic quiver. First, 80% of patients with psoriasis have limited body surface area involved and thus are candidates for topical therapy. Second, even our best treatments for patients with moderate to severe psoriasis will fail to achieve 100% clearance in a large percentage of patients. Thus, dermatologists must master both the art and science of the use of topical therapies to manage psoriasis. The American Academy of.
