El impacto de la psoriasis en nuestro bienestar

The impact of psoriasis on our well-being

Psoriasis is a chronic skin disease that affects millions of people. It goes beyond skin lesions as it also impacts physical, emotional and social well-being. In this article, we will address its impact on well-being.

A disease beyond the skin

Physical impact:

Psoriasis can cause a series of physical symptoms that can affect the quality of life of those who suffer from it. Skin lesions, such as red, scaly plaques, can be painful, itchy, and cause irritation. Constant itching can interfere with sleep, work, and daily activities, leading to fatigue and exhaustion. Additionally, the joints can also be affected in some cases of psoriasis, resulting in psoriatic arthritis, a painful condition that makes movement difficult.

Emotional impact:

Psoriasis not only affects the physical appearance, but can also have a significant impact on the mental and emotional state. People with psoriasis often experience feelings of shame, low self-esteem, and depression. The visibility of skin lesions can lead to self-criticism and social isolation, as many people may misinterpret the disease as contagious. Stress and anxiety related to psoriasis can create a vicious cycle, as these factors can trigger flare-ups and worsen symptoms.

Social impact:

Psoriasis can have a significant impact on social interactions and personal relationships. Many people with this disease avoid participating in social activities, such as relaxing on the beach or playing sports, due to the anxiety caused by showing the appearance of their skin and the worry about rejection. Lack of understanding and stigmatization of psoriasis can lead to isolation and social distancing. Additionally, the time and effort spent on skin treatment and care can interfere with work and family responsibilities, creating additional stress.

Psoriasis is more than a skin disease. Its impact on well-being covers the physical, emotional and social aspects of those who suffer from it. Understanding this disease and empathy towards affected people are essential to breaking the stigma and improving the quality of life of patients. It is important to promote comprehensive care that treats the physical symptoms as well as the emotional and social aspects of psoriasis.
