“Psoriasis drastically affects the everyday lives of patients as it victimises more than 125 million people worldwide,” reads a statement to mark upcoming International Psoriasis Day on October 29.

Pakistan Psoriasis Foundation report states that in an analysis of survey data from 5,000 psoriasis patients, 20% of women said that psoriasis was a massive problem in their everyday lives, compared to only 12% of men.
