29th of October is World Psoriasis Day

We were also joined on the line by Catherine Alexander – Chairperson of the Psoriasis Association. We were talking about Psoriasis because on Thursday the 29th of October is World Psoriasis Day which aims to raise more awareness about this condition. Psoriasis is a non-contagious skin disorder and it affects one to two percent of the population. Unfortunately there is no cure for Psoriasis, but many different treatments, both topical (on the skin) and systemic (throughout the body), can clear psoriasis for periods of time. On Saturday the 31st of October they will be hosting a fun walk at the V&A Waterfront from 10AM. For more information you can contact the Psoriasis Association at (021) 981 1650.
