Medical Services - Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic, non-contagious skin disease of scaling and inflammation that affects about 2 percent of the US population, or as many as 7.5 million Americans. Psoriasis most often appears on the scalp, elbows, knees, and torso but can develop anywhere. Up to 30% of people with psoriasis will develop psoriatic arthritis, or painful, inflamed, stiff joints.

Impact of Psoriasis on Quality of Life

Individuals with psoriasis may experience significant physical discomfort and some disability. Psoriasis of the hands and feet can prevent individuals from working at certain occupations. Many people with psoriasis feel self-conscious about their appearance and have a poor self-image. The psychological distress can lead to significant depression, alcoholism, and social isolation.
