Tampa dermatologist Forman dermatology and skin cancer instituteTampa dermatologist Dr. Seth Forman is overlooking a clinical trial, in hopes of finding an effective treatment for those who suffer from plaque psoriasis.

The new medication, which is currently unnamed, has produced promising results thus far. Patients have been treated with a topical steroid that is applied to the surface of the skin, with the ability to help alleviate largely affected areas on the body.

“Battling plaque psoriasis can be challenging,” said the Tampa dermatologist. “Our hope is that this medication will help take control of the scaling, thickness and redness of the skin.”

According to the National Psoriasis Foundation, plaque psoriasis appears as raised, red patches covered with a silvery white buildup of dead skin cells or scale that is most common on the scalp, knees, elbows and lower back.

The clinical trial being conducted by the Tampa dermatologist began in August and will continue for the next several months until enough research is accrued.

“We are very happy with the results we’ve seen so far,” said Dr. Forman. “Only through extensive, ongoing research can we give people the option of getting the best medication that is proven to effectively relieve symptoms.”

In addition to plaque psoriasis, Dr. Forman’s office is conducting clinical trials for nail psoriasis and eczema.

Dr. Forman is the founder of Forman Dermatology and Skin institute, located in Tampa, Fla. and has appeared on TV shows across the country, including the nationally syndicated show “The Doctors,” to provide sun-protection tips and to demonstrate his breakthrough skin cancer treatments.
