This month, we’ve officially launched our FREE mypsoriasis support programme to help people with psoriasis. Psoriasis is a common skin condition which affects approximately 2% of the population within the UK.
As talkhealth has such a large community of people interested in skin conditions plus reflecting on our heritage, it was important for us to create a patient support programme to complement our other dermatology based support programmes which are FREE resources for talkhealth members who are seeking extra support for the skin condition.
Some of the topics included in our mypsoriasis support programme covers include:
- Types of psoriasis
- Treatments, triggers and symptoms
- Questions to ask your doctor
- Practical information about self-managing psoriasis
- Stories from other people with the condition
The free programme is sponsored by Ganodex, a natural, non-greasy emollient that helps manage irritation, itching, and scaling. In studies, 85% of Ganodex™ users with psoriasis reported improved skin and a higher proportion with eczema.
We work with a wide range of stakeholders all with a special interest in psoriasis to help expand the reach of this (and other) support programmes. These valuable partnerships ensure we can reach the right patients who will benefit from the programme and further grow our psoriasis community at talkhealth.
If you would like more information on our psoriasis community and the work that we do in this and other dermatology fields, then please get in touch.
