Emotional Health and Psoriasis

Posted on May 04, 2018

People living with psoriasis experience a lot of emotional ups and downs. Psoriasis can mean new lesions that draw attention and a constant battle against itching. This takes its toll on emotional health. Some medications have side effects that can intensify feelings of depression or anxiety.

On MyPsoriasisTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Emotional health is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.
