Psoriasis


Psoriasis is a common skin disease affecting 1 in 50 people. It occurs equally in men
and women. It can appear at any age. Psoriasis is a long-term condition which may
come and go throughout your lifetime. It is not infectious; therefore you cannot catch
psoriasis from someone else. It does not scar the skin although sometimes it can
cause a temporary increase or reduction in skin colour. Although psoriasis is a longterm condition there are many effective treatments available to keep it under good
control.

Psoriasis can affect:
1. nails and the joints as well as the skin.
2.particularly moderate to severe psoriasis, is associated with an increased
risk of anxiety and depression and harmful use of alcohol.
3. Moderate to severe psoriasis increases the risk of heart disease and stroke and treatment of psoriasis may reduce this risk.
