My Psoriasis Team
This app is a social network dedicated to help those with psoriasis tell their story and connect with others who have the condition. When you first log on to your account the app will ask "How was your day today." Here you can be honest about exactly how you are feeling with others who will understand and relate to your life with psoriasis. You can also share pictures of your condition, ask others questions about treatment, and much more. Another cool feature I love about the app is you can search for people in your area who have psoriasis. Features:
- Connect with others who have psoriasis.
- Share pictures of your disease without judgement.
- Receive advice from others who have psoriasis.
- Locate dermatologist in your area.
