Drug Found to Clear Genital Psoriasis in Most PatientsA drug called ixekizumab might improve the sex lives of people suffering from genital psoriasis.

In a recent clinical trial, almost three-quarters of the 149 participants saw their genital psoriasis clear up significantly.

Psoriasis is a skin disorder that causes skin cells to accumulate and form thick, scaly patches. These areas can be painful and itchy.

Sometimes, psoriasis forms on the genitals, making sex uncomfortable. It can take an emotional toll on sexuality as well. Psoriasis is not contagious, so it can’t be transmitted between sex partners. But people with psoriasis often worry about a partner’s reaction and many feel unattractive and reluctant to start new relationships.
