Looking at Psoriasis from the inside out.
Psoriasis is a complex condition that may severely impact your quality of life and self-esteem, reducing confidence, and even taking an emotional toll. We are now looking at psoriasis from the inside out. So, if you are living with psoriasis, we urge you not to suffer in silence but to encourage people around you- your friends, family and healthcare professionals- to #AskHowIFeel, and open up to them about both your physical and emotional experience of psoriasis. Talking to those around you can be very helpful in building support systems to minimise the impact psoriasis has on your day-to-day life.
David McMahon, CEO of the Irish Skin Foundation, discusses the #AskHowIFeel campaign
Dr Catherine Wilkinson, General Practitioner, discusses the ways in which psoriasis may affect people’s lives, and highlights the support available to manage this.
Dr Marina O’Kane, Consultant Dermatologist in Beaumont Hospital, discusses the impact of psoriasis on quality of life and how best to work with your healthcare professional to address this.
