One major concern in treatment of psoriasis is the cost of the treatment method. Between 2009 and 2015, prices of dermatologic products increased by 401% for brand names and 279% for generics. Often, patients with psoriasis will need a combination of products, which will only increase their medication costs. Discovering and utilizing less expensive options is important in order to avoid patients leaving prescriptions unfilled.
