Psoriasis can have an impact on the psychological and emotional wellbeing of people living with the condition. Dr. Reena Shah, a UK-based clinical psychologist specializing in dermatology, talks to us about her experience of seeing people with psoriasis and the importance of addressing the psychological impact with their dermatologist, because every patient deserves to feel confident in their own skin.
Visit the doctor discussion guide if you need support starting a conversation with your doctor about the psychological impact of psoriasis.
You deserve to feel confident in your skin, but how do you have a clear conversation about your psoriasis goals with your doctor? Sometimes speaking up can be the hardest part.
Be clear about your goals. The power to speak up, feel confident and demand the best care is within you. Sharing your story could be your next step to feeling free from psoriasis—and possibly inspire others to do the same.
