Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis: Getting Started

If you're living with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis, you know the effects aren't just physical. Not only do skin and joint symptoms hurt and itch, but they also take a toll on your emotions and social life and stop you from doing the things you enjoy. Relationships, goals, dreams, your stress level and your overall health can suffer.

While there's no cure for psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis, the right treatment can ease symptoms and help prevent flare-ups. It can also do wonders for your quality of life. And if you have psoriatic arthritis, starting treatment as early as possible can prevent lasting joint damage.

Use this guide to start a life-changing conversation with your doctor about the care you need—so you can get back to living.
