What can help if you have psoriasis?
I learned that this year the National Psoriasis Foundation is referring to August’s Psoriasis Awareness Month as Psoriasis Action Month. The month is intended to help individuals living with psoriasis better treat and manage their condition.
I like the switch to action as I tend to put off addressing long overdue changes, including those related to my health and psoriasis care.
