Suffering from Psoriasis (or think you may be)? SkyMD can help.
Psoriasis is a genetic condition that causes pink scaly lesions that can itch or become irritated. Psoriasis can be associated with other medical conditions such as arthritis, obesity, heart disease and high cholesterol, among others. Psoriasis can cause depression and lower self esteem.
Psoriasis: What to do about it
Psoriasis causes itchiness and irritation and may even be painful. Anyone can get psoriasis, regardless of age. If you have (or suspect that you have) psoriasis, you should consult a dermatologist. There are various treatments to manage psoriasis, but no one treatment is effective for everyone. Psoriasis is not contagious, but it requires the correct care and attention to successfully manage.
