Psoriasis

Overview


 
In this section, you can find out about the experience of having psoriasis by seeing and hearing young people share their personal stories on film. Our researchers talked to 18 young people in their own homes. Find out what people said about issues such as symptoms, treatments and impact on school, university and social life. We hope you find the information helpful and reassuring.

The people we talked to were given the choice about the format their interview appears on the website. Some people chose for their interview clips to be featured as audio or text only, rather than video.

You can start viewing topics by clicking 'Next Topic' above, or selecting from the list on the left. You can also view 'People's Profiles' from the tab above.
