XTRAC Excimer Laser Provides Relief for Psoriasis Sufferers' Fall Flare-Ups
Date:10/17/2011

MONTGOMERYVILLE, Pa., Oct. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- For the 7.5 million Americans suffering from psoriasis, the fall season brings more than just shorter days, less access to sunlight and colder temperatures.
