August is National Psoriasis Awareness Month


Psoriasis Awareness Month Each August, the National Psoriasis Foundation sponsors Psoriasis Awareness Month, dedicated to raising awareness about psoriasis, educating the public, and dispelling myths about the diseases. Psoriasis is the most common autoimmune disease in the country, affecting 7.5 million Americans. It appears on the skin, often as red, scaly patches that itch, crack, and bleed. Up to 30 percent of people with psoriasis develop psoriatic arthritis, an inflammatory joint and tendon disease. For more information, contact: National Psoriasis Foundation | 800.723.9166

Thanks for taking this initiative to spread awareness about psoriasis. I'll do my bit for the cause. I always felt bad when people give you weird looks when they see the lesions on my hands and feet... It was so embarrassing. The condition can cause embarrassment and getting unwanted looks and attention makes it worse. Anyways, I have had success in controlling the lesions with a product whose review you can read below. Click here to read it/ It works as long as you are using it. I hope for a magical permanent solution in the future. But, meanwhile this product helps me keep the lesions at bay.
