August is Psoriasis Awareness Month

Written by
Sadly, many people who first view psoriasis on another person think it's some horrible contagious disease when in reality it is not. It just looks so bad that those who view it feel repulsed by it. Then the person afflicted by it feels isolated and alone. So, what is psoriasis exactly?
Genetics and the immune system of a person play a vital role in the development of the disease. In those with psoriasis, the immune system sends abnormal signals that significantly accelerate the growth process of the skin cells. A person has a combination of certain genes that cause psoriasis. External triggers are skin injury, stress, smoking and infections.There is still no cure for psoriasis but a variety of treatment options are available to help with the symptoms. It is important to take note that treatment is individualized depending on the type of psoriasis, its severity and how the person reacts to certain treatments. 
August is Psoriasis Awareness Month and is a public health and awareness campaign sponsored by the National Psoriasis Foundation for educating the public, raising awareness and dispelling myths about the disease. According to the National Psoriasis Foundation, "Psoriasis is a chronic, non-contagious, genetic autoimmune disease that causes red, scaly patches on the skin. It can also crack, itch and bleed. It is actually the most common among all the autoimmune diseases in the United States and it affects approximately 7.5 million people in the US and 125 million are affected worldwide."
Up to 1/3 of those with psoriasis will develop psoriatic arthritis which is a type of arthritis that is inflammatory. It causes pain and swelling of the joints along with the tendons. Even mild cases of psoriasis can develop psoriatic arthritis. 
The effects on the quality of life are:
  • 75% feel unattractive.
  • 54% are depressed.
  • 31% are under financial distress.
  • 8% are restricted to working at home.
  • Worse, 40%-50% who suffer moderate to severe psoriasis report they are dissatisfied with existing treatment, indicating the need for more new therapies.
