However, these increased risks may be due to the fact that immune-suppressing therapies are commonly used as treatments for plaque psoriasis. Regardless, people with psoriasis should get annual cancer screenings. It is also prudent to avoid “Risky Business.” Meaning no smoking, drinking in excess, and sunbathing all day every day. You can still rock out, like Young Tom with no pants on, though. In fact, that sort of dancing around is encouraged. Being active and making other healthy lifestyle choices does you a lot of good.
