What is one thing you would like others to know about psoriasis?

I will go first. We are not contagious. It is the 21st century and people still believe they can "catch it". You can't get it from kissing, sipping my drink, or sharing french fries with me. And yes, we can all get in the same pool together.

Please share something you would like people to know. We would like to hear from you. Diane (Team Member)

  1. We struggle enough mentally with having psoriasis. Please be considerate when you think about commenting on what we look like. We did not ask to have psoriasis. Vickie W., Team Member

    1. It's not that I'm a meth smoker that I have sores

      1. Hello , Exactly!!! I get it. Thanks for sharing. How long have you had PsO? Diane (Team Member)

        1. 30 years

        2. Hello , thanks for the feedback. 30 years is a long time. I have had it for 61 years and still can't get people to understand what we go through with this. What type of treatment are you on if you want to share? I am on my 8th biologic in 20 years. I would like to hear more about your journey. Diane (Team Member)
