This year’s Psoriasis Awareness week aims to raise awareness of small lifestyle changes that can help improve quality of life for people with psoriasis.

The ‘Small steps’ campaign has a video animation and postcard booklet of lifestyle tips submitted by people who are living with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. Among the actions that can have a positive impact are:

  • healthy eating and avoiding certain trigger foods;
  • reducing alcohol consumption, increasing physical activity;
  • losing weight;
  • addressing stress levels;
  • cutting down on smoking.

The Psoriasis Association would also like people “to submit the questions about psoriasis that you’d most like researchers to focus on answering.” Responses will be gathered to compile a Top 10 list of questions compiled which will help direct future research into psoriasis.

“The survey only takes a couple of minutes to complete and, whether you have psoriasis yourself, are a parent of a child with psoriasis, or have a friend or family member with the condition, we want to hear from you,” said the Psoriasis Association.

The campaign week runs until Sunday November 5, and posters and leaflets, and images for use on social media to raise awareness are also available. People are asked to include the hashtag #psoaware in any conversations on social media.
