Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that causes red patches on the skin. It’s not contagious, but it can be very painful.
Psoriasis is a long-term condition that can affect anyone at any age. It’s more common in people aged over 60, but it can start as early as 12 years old and affects men and women equally.
There’s no cure for psoriasis, but treatments are available that ease symptoms and make it easier to manage.
If you have psoriasis, you might find it hard to accept that your condition will never go away completely. But there are things you can do to help yourself feel more confident and get on with life:
Psoriasis takes patience because it could flare up at any time without warning or reason; therefore, you must be willing to wait until your skin clears before starting any new treatment or medication.
Patience also applies to those around you who may not understand what you are going through or why you cannot be around certain people or places at times due to flare-ups or medications that cause sun sensitivity.
Learn About Your Condition
Read up on psoriasis to understand your disease and learn about its treatments. Most importantly, learn about what makes psoriasis flare up for you so you can avoid triggers and start treatments early if you need to. If you’re not sure where to start learning about psoriasis, ask your doctor or dermatologist for helpful resources.
It’s important to find out what triggers your psoriasis flare-ups so you can avoid them if possible. This can include stress or certain situations that make your symptoms worse, such as sweating or being in cold weather. If you know what triggers your flare-ups, it’ll be easier to manage them when they happen.
