Are you one of the 1.8m population living in the UK with psoriasis?
Psoriasis can occur on any part of the body and it affects men and women equally. 77% of those affected by psoriasis describe it as a ‘problem’ or ‘significant problem’ impacting their quality of life, which includes missing work and work performance. It has also been linked to depression and anxiety.
Psoriasis is a skin disease in which the skin cells grow faster than normal. This abnormal growth causes a build-up of cells on the surface of the skin. Red, raised patches of skin that are covered with silver-coloured scales form on your skin.
85% of people with psoriasis feel annoyed with their disease and is often the result of their quality of life being affected such as limitations to daily activities.
