Psoriasis? What’s that?

It is a common and chronic but non-contagious skin condition.

psoriasis_inside_out

There you go. That’s what Psoriasis is. Personally, I’ve never heard of this particular skin condition before until recently. So I learned something new and here’s the crazy part; Psoriasis patients face a daily battle against us – the ‘normal’ people. Why? Our unconscious actions; stares, whispers, etc. (http://mypsoriasis.my/whatspsoriasis)

So there’s an ongoing awareness campaign (http://mypsoriasis.my/jointhemovement) where people with and without Psoriasis are challenged to wear their clothes inside out. Why inside out? Two reasons.

One. Wearing your clothes inside out is going to attract unwanted stares and unconscious whispers. And this is exactly how Psoriasis patients feel every single day in their life.

Secondly. The theme for World Psoriasis Day is Inside Out. It’s a simple idea. One that is inline.

 

Let’s do this! #PsoriasisInsideOut
