RATE

Although people with psoriasis have many treatment options available, finding a treatment plan that works is still a challenge. Effectively managing flare-ups means that your healthcare provider may have started you on one treatment, but recommend another one as symptoms change.  Balancing the flare-up remission cycle is difficult medically, physically, and emotionally.   Participants in the “Psoriasis In America” survey report a heavy emotional toll, with feelings of isolation and stigma a significant part of the journey of living with psoriasis.
