August is Proriasis Awareness month and is used as an opportunity to educate and inform sufferers on a range of topics varying from treatment, causes, triggers and management of the inflammatory and often irritating disease.
The cause of psoriasis is still unknown but specialists do know that it is largely affected by the immune system and genetics.
Affecting men and women, all races and all ages, the disease can display on a variety of body parts at any given time therefore it is important to understand what you can do about it as and when you are affected by it. Learning to successfully manage treatment can take a long period of time but there are many ways in which the disease can be controlled and treated.
Whether you chose to do this via medication, holistic, complementary and alternative approaches, dietary control or lifestyle choices is down to each individual but there is a huge amount of support and information available enabling you to find the best solution.
An often irritating and sometimes challenging disease, we hope you can find support to manage the symptoms successfully. The National Psoriasis Foundation website has lots of useful information to guide you.
