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.
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.
Helping patients, especially those with moderate to severe psoriasis, receive counseling and appropriate referral when needed also means asking questions that go beyond what you see on their skin. You can help every patient live a better life.
Every type of psoriasis is different.
Psoriasis has a deep impact on patients' physical and mental health.
Different treatments address different needs.
A flare-up can be triggered by stress, hormonal changes or injuries to the skin.
This systemic and heterogeneous disorder involves T-cells that play a dominant pathogenic role in inflammation and rapid skin cell-growing.
125 million people, of different ages and genders, are living with psoriasis worldwide, which makes for 2-3% of the global population.
