« on: November 03, 2018, 02:04:48 PM »
Psoriasis drastically affects the everyday lives of patients as it victimizes more than 125 million people worldwide,” reads a statement to mark upcoming International Psoriasis Day on October 29.
Pakistan Psoriasis Foundation report states that in an analysis of survey data from 5,000 psoriasis patients, 20% of women said that psoriasis was a massive problem in their everyday lives, compared to only 12% of men.
Overall, women have greater difficulty dealing with the psychological and social issues brought about by the condition.
Sindh Government Hospital Saudabad Chief Medical Officer Dr Fauzia Farid said, “Psoriasis is a chronic, inflammatory skin disease clinically evident as raised inflamed scaly red skin lesions that crack and itch.”
