“Psychological Aspects of Psoriasis”

psychological aspects of psoriasis, psoriasis psychology
On my hunting for information on psoriasis I came across a site called "Papaa" which stands for The Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis Alliance. 

So I had a little nosey around and found that they had some leaflets which you are able to download. The main one that caught my eye was the psychological aspects one. I know from having the condition that it can make you depressed and self conscious but seeing it written down really puts into focus how much of a negative affect it has. 

I can't say that the information in the leaflet is wrong, but i wanted it to be as seeing in black and white really brings home the way that myself and others may all be feeling. It just encourages me to keep up with this site and reach others to try and help! 

If you want to give it, and other leaflets, a read then the link is...

It has some helpful relaxation techniques that might help in situations where you feel rather over-whelmed by having psoriasis. 

Let me know what you think...


  1. Hello All,

    Kara has been kind enough and brave enough to get involved in my documentary in the hope that together we'll raise awareness for the condition and help other people living with psoriasis.

    My name is Hayley Arnold and I'm the daughter of a psoriasis suffer who has had psoriatic arthritis and plaque psoriasis for nearly 30 years.

    Skin Deep is a documentary that I'm making about psoriasis sufferers that focuses on people's experiences and stories of the condition. Whilst also addressing how the condition effects their lives and that of their relatives and loved ones. I hope the documentary will be a positive experience for those who take part. The aim of the documentary is to raise awareness of the condition and the need for better emotional care for patients and their families. The documentary is also looking at the bigger issues surrounding the disease such as care, lack of emotional support and the continued research into looking for better treatments, a cure and understanding the condition. I also hope to speak to dermatologists on what treatments are available to patients and the condition itself.

    My main aim is that the documentary will raise awareness for the condition but I also hope that it will be a film of inspirational stories and experiences that will help other suffers understand their condition and themselves better. I also believe it will help families and partners to understand their loved one who lives with the condition.

    I hope that by sharing this with you other people living with psoriasis's will find the confidence to speak out, share their stories and demand better care and treatments that you so rightly deserve.

    All the best
