Psoriasis is a common skin condition which affects approximately 2% of the population within the UK. Psoriasis is caused by the skin cells replacing more quickly than usual, which results in patches of dry, red skin which is covered with silvery scales which some may also find become sore or itchy. Although there is no cure for psoriasis, there are many treatment options and lifestyle changes which may help you better manage and improve your symptoms. Psoriasis can for some have a severe impact on their wellbeing, both physically and mentally, and support can play a key role in helping alleviate some of the emotional strain felt due to the condition.
