Psoriasis: What People Don't See (Infographic)

Posted on October 04, 2016

Below the surface, living with psoriasis can mean days spent in pain, missed appointments, and alternate days when we seem "fine." There's so much more to psoriasis than meets the eye. We know that psoriasis comes with hundreds of possible combinations of symptoms, many of which appear invisible to outsiders. Most people don't see the many symptoms we experience.

On MyPsoriasisTeam.com, the social network and online support group for people living with psoriasis, members discuss the chronic nature of the disease and its hidden symptoms. MyPsoriasisTeam has grown to reach 49,000 members and members have shared over 1 million conversations about life with psoriasis. Throughout the year we will share themes we see come up time and time again on MyPsoriasisTeam. We chose the image of an iceberg to represent psoriasis symptoms because the life-impacting implications of a psoriasis diagnosis aren't obvious on the surface. Please share to spread psoriasis awareness!



This list is by no means exhaustive. What symptoms would you add?
