Reassure them icon

Having a noticeable flare-up and your companion seems uncomfortable? Let them know that you’ve got psoriasis and reassure them that it’s not contagious in any way (it might be on their mind).

Educate them icon

Explain that psoriasis is an autoimmune disease and flare-ups can be caused by many things such as stress, cold temperatures, or trauma to the skin from a cut, scrape, or bug bite. If you'd like, why not encourage them to read a bit about psoriasis themselves?

Be strong icon

Some people may not have the reaction you’d hope for or dismiss your symptoms as no big deal. This is their issue, not yours. It's ok to let them know you're disappointed with their response. Remember, you’re stronger than you think and people can surprise you—you may find support where you least expect it.
