Psoriasis is so much more than skin plaques

Psoriasis is so much
more than skin plaques

It’s the feeling of anxiety, helplessness and more. Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition, yet it can interrupt patients’ lives with physical and psychological burden.[1]

As a general practitioner, you can make a difference by evaluating how severely your patients' skin is affected, as well as the burden psoriasis is causing them.[2]

Helping patients, especially those with moderate to severe psoriasis, receive counseling and appropriate referral when needed[2] also means asking questions that go beyond what you see on their skin. You can help every patient live a better life.

Psoriasis in a nutshell

  • Psoriasis is a chronic disease that can appear on any part of the body.[3]
  • A flare-up can be triggered by stress, hormonal changes or injuries to the skin.[4]

  • This systemic and heterogeneous disorder[5] involves T-cells that play a dominant pathogenic role in inflammation and rapid skin cell-growing.[6]
