Plaque Psoriasis Q&As
Dr. Jeanne Morrison, PhD
Is psoriasis life-threatening?
Psoriasis may be uncomfortable at times, but it is not a life-threatening condition. Most people diagnosed with psoriasis learn how to manage the condition using a treatment plan prescribed by their doctor. That, combined with an awareness of what triggers flare-ups, makes the disease manageable for the large majority of those affected. Perhaps the most damaging effect of psoriasis is the psychological toll it can take. Living with psoriasis is very embarrassing for some people, to the point where they begin to have other problems because of it. If you begin to feel depressed as a result of your condition, don't be afraid to seek out professional counsel or a support group in your area.<br /><br />
