Q:

What foods can make my arthritis symptoms worse?

A:

Arthritis involves a lot of swelling and inflammation, so we want to stay away from foods that can lead to further inflammation. Red meat, and other foods containing saturated fats, is a common culprit leading to increased joint pain. You should also try to avoid fast foods and processed foods, as they can aggravate your symptoms. Ask you rheumatologist for more details, and you may wish to speak with a registered dietitian for a review of your arthritis diet.

Q:

How is psoriasis treated?

A:

The first line of defence in treating psoriasis is creams, usually with cortisone in them. Other treatments may include other types of ointments, phototherapy and stronger oral medications. If you think you have psoriasis or your psoriasis is not being well managed, visit your doctor to address your skin concerns.

Q:

What is rosacea?

A:

Rosacea is a skin condition which usually affects a person's face. It involves redness on the cheeks or nose that comes and goes. If it continues to persist, the redness may become deeper and eventually develop pimples and bumps on the face. If you think you have rosacea, ask your family doctor for guidance.
