A new prescription-only foam spray treatment for psoriasis sufferers has been launched in the UK.

Trials show that the foam, called Enstilar, is more effective than traditional creams and ointments.

More than half of trial patients with the skin condition are said to have experienced significant improvement after applying the foam for four weeks.

Dr Keith Freeman, a consultant dermatologist from Sunderland, said: "The launch of Enstilar foam spray in the UK is a significant advance which provides an easy-to-apply topical combination treatment for plaque psoriasis."

A total of 81% of psoriasis patients using Enstilar reported quality of life improvement after four weeks, according to the trial data.
