Topical therapies are used by most psoriasis patients either alone or in combination with systemic therapies and phototherapy. The objective of this paper is to review the different topical therapies to treat mild to moderate psoriasis, including corticosteroids, vitamin D analogs, tazarotene, topical calcineurin inhibitors, anthralin, salicylic acid, and coal tar and assess their effectiveness and tolerability. Topical therapies are important for treating psoriasis and will continue to play a major role even as new systemic therapies emerge.
