Psoriasis In America: What’s That?

At this time, our survey is currently closed. By signing up for our email list, you'll be among the first to have first-hand access to our most recent survey results.

Whether you're newly diagnosed or have lived with psoriasis for years, managing the physical and emotional symptoms of this chronic condition is far from easy. In fact, at times, it can be pretty overwhelming.

How do I find a treatment that is going to work? Why are there so many options? What if my treatment stops working? Well, exactly what are my triggers? Why don't strangers or loved ones know that it's so much more than simply moisturizing? Soon enough, psoriasis has become a big part of your identity.

Many people jump online to research the ins and outs of psoriatic disease but have trouble finding reliable information. What can also be difficult is finding others who have psoriasis understand the challenges that come with living with this autoimmune condition and are willing to connect and share their experiences. This is where you and our In America Survey can bridge this gap.

What will the survey ask me?

The survey will ask about diagnosis, symptoms, symptom management, quality of life and relationships, healthcare professional engagement, and treatment awareness and experience. We do not require your name, address, or other personal information. 

Please note that you do not have to take the survey all at once. Feel free to bookmark the survey in your Internet browser and return when you are able. You will resume where you left off.

How can a survey help?

Each person that takes the survey contributes to a better understanding of psoriasis and can help others who are going through it feel less alone. Sharing experiences in the survey can reveal how similar each person’s journey with psoriasis is, as well as the differences that make each journey unique.

What happens after I take the survey?

After the survey closes each year, the Editorial Team at PlaquePsoriasis.com takes the responses and creates an infographic filled with information about life with psoriasis. But that’s not all – over the year, we publish articles based on learnings from the survey, like this one about the impact of flares or the painful reality of remission.

Each article published using responses from the survey contributes to the information available to those affected by psoriasis and helps them connect with those who have walked the same path.

How do we use the In America Survey data?

Survey responses help us and our partners better understand the psoriasis community. All survey responses are kept confidential, reported only in total (your specific responses will not be reported individually), and will become the property of Health Union, LLC.

This year, 2022, we want to uncover the reality of psoriasis. We want to understand the emotional challenges, the stigma, and the partnered anxiety. It's so much more than an insatiable, painful, and burning widespread itch.
