Psoriasis is among the most studied skin conditions, predominantly because it is more than an external condition. In fact, psoriasis starts on the inside.
Psoriasis is a chronic disease of the immune system, and the effects can range from mild to severe. Clinical research has shown that psoriasis may be associated with conditions such as Type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and psoriatic arthritis.
Treating psoriasis often entails treating the underlying causes, which can lead to an overall improvement in patients’ well-being, inside and out.
