Treatments for active arthritis can be more aggressive than treatments for skin disease, because joint and bone damage, unlike skin changes, are more likely to be permanent. In particular, systemic treatments are usually used for psoriatic arthritis. Some drugs being used or tested to treat both skin and joint psoriasis are methotrexate, sulfasalazine, cyclosporine, infliximab, etanercept, adalimumab, golimumab, and ustekinumab.
