About psoriasis

Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition, which affects nearly 2 million people in the UK and Ireland. It is equally common in men and women and often develops between the ages of 15 and 35, but can occur at any age. Psoriasis symptoms typically include red scaly patches on the surface of the skin, accompanied by severe itchiness and irritation.
Far from being ‘just a skin condition’, psoriasis is associated with a number of serious health conditions, both physical and psychological.
