Psoriasis- is it a disability?
Hi, I want to know can anyone suddenly get psoriasis? Is it a disability? What happens if psoriasis is left untreated?
Psoriasis is a skin disease that causes red, itchy scaly patches, most commonly on the knees, elbows, trunk and scalp.
Psoriasis is a common, long-term (chronic) disease with no cure. It tends to go through cycles, flaring for a few weeks or months, then subsiding for a while or going into remission. Treatments are available to help you manage symptoms. And you can incorporate lifestyle habits and coping strategies to help you live better with psoriasis.
Many people who are predisposed to psoriasis may be free of symptoms for years until the disease is triggered by some environmental factor.
