August marks Psoriasis Awareness Month.
Psoriasis is a multisystem condition, in which skin cells build up and form scales and itchy, dry patches, causing the patient a mild discomfort or sometimes affecting the quality of life seriously. Those who suffer from psoriasis are often forced to make activity and clothing choices influenced by the condition.
It is a chronic autoimmune disease which cannot be healed.
However, there are many treatment options available to mitigate the condition.
Millions of patients worldwide will benefit from spreading information about psoriasis. Despite the common myths around psoriasis, it is neither contagious, nor infectious.
