When you are diagnosed with a chronic condition like psoriasis it can feel overwhelming. How will you manage the various symptoms? How will you figure out what triggers your psoriasis? How will you share with others about your condition? Many people jump online to research the ins and outs of psoriasis but have trouble finding reliable information. What can also be difficult is finding others who have psoriasis and understand the challenges that come with living with this autoimmune condition and are willing to connect and share their experiences.
How can a survey help?
The Plaque Psoriasis In America survey is an annual survey on PlaquePsoriasis.com that seeks to close some of these gaps. The survey covers “basics” like diagnosis and treatment experiences, but also dives into the nitty gritty, like the emotional impact and the seemingly “small” day-to-day challenges.
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 your 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 experiences with remission or this one about psoriasis symptoms. 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.

The Plaque Psoriasis In America 2019 survey is now open! One voice may seem like it won’t make a difference, but each voice can change how others perceive life with psoriasis and bring comfort to someone coping with his or her diagnosis.
