Psoriasis… the facts
Psoriasis is a chronic, systemic inflammatory skin disorder that affects at least 73,000 people in Ireland. It is very common and has a long-term effect with no current known cure.
It is characterised by abnormal raised skin, and it varies in coverage from small, localised patches to full body coverage. These patches normally appear on elbows, knees, scalp and lower back, but can appear anywhere on the body.
