World Psoriasis Day, an annual day dedicated to people living with psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis, is celebrated on October 29. It is an opportune time to strengthen our resolve to spread awareness, debunk myths and empower patients to seek early and effective treatment for psoriasis.
The impact of Psoriasis goes far beyond just the lesions or scars on the skin; it also brings along a psychosocial burden caused by the stigma attached to it.
World Psoriasis Day is a perfect opportunity to break this stigma and UNHIDE PSORIASIS
People living with psoriasis and/or psoriatic arthritis share their stories about impact of the disease and how they overcome it.
