What is Psoriasis? What causes Psoriasis? – Two important questions answered
According to the International Federation of Psoriasis Associations (IFPA), Psoriasis affects nearly 3% of the world population. Most often mistaken as a skin condition, it is an immune condition that can have a physical and psychological impact. People affected with psoriasis often face discrimination and embarrassment in public places simply because others fear that it is contagious, when in fact, it is not.
August is celebrated as Psoriasis Awareness Month, to educate the public and dispel myths associated with the disease. We asked Dr Pratik Patel to educate us about psoriasis and what all one needs to know about this disease.
