Psoriasis Awareness Month

Each August, the National Psoriasis Foundation sponsors Psoriasis Awareness Month to raise awareness, encourage research and advocate for people with psoriasis. 

Psoriasis, an autoimmune disease, affects about 7.5 million people in the United States. 

Psoriasis is a disease that causes plaques, which are itchy or sore patches of thick, red, dry skin.
