    Psoriasis and COVID - Can you help?

    Psoriasis and COVID - Can you help?

    Can you help answer the BIG questions? (spoiler: the answer is yes) ..... and you can do this from your sofa. Minimal effort required.
    So how do you help transform the world for people living with psoriasis in these very uncertain COVID-Y times?
    The easiest thing to do is help Prof. Catherine Smith and Dr. Satveer Mahil by answering a questionnaire.
    What!? I hear you - it sounds too easy right?
    Well this is the deal. They are trying to answer this huge question-
    How does COVID affect people with psoriasis? The problem is that the information they have so far is skewed. They see patients in their clinic... but that's it. They don't know you, and until I filled out their survey, they didn't know me either.
    It's impossible to answer big questions without big data.
    That means psoriasis stuff about you, and your kids (if they have psoriasis) and your nan (if she has psoriasis too) is hidden to researchers because these members of your family are often missed out when data is collected online.
    Can you help? Or are you worried about your data?
    If you're worried about your data then I totally get you. That's why the data you submit can be anonymised. Probably spelt wrong- but it does what it says on the tin. You will not be identifiable.
    Or you can be like me where you say "Heck YEAH! email me some more info when you have it!" because that's how I roll...plus I'm nosey as heck when it comes to psoriasis stuff and want to know what's going on.

    Ep 29: The Best Treatment for Scalp Psoriasis : 4 Key challenges of living with scalp psoriasis & what you can do about them

    Scalp Psoriasis is something I have had a lot of experience with - and in my 30 years i have concluded that there is a reason we find treating our challenges with scalp psoriasis so hard.
    Scalp psoriasis is in my opinion 4 problems - not one. Each individual challenge has its own specific treatment approaches and knowing these can help you dial into your own best treatment approach.
    Episode Highlights:
    The four key challenges of living with scalp psoriasis
    What to do if you have a problem with itching

Brilliant

I have suffered from psoriasis for over 22 years. This podcast is essential listening to any sufferers. It is incredibly informative and empowers you to take control over your condition. It guides you away from the fads and cures that supposedly work that you will find on the internet. Listen and learn. Thanks for doing this podcast. Because my god does it help to find support of this nature when you suffer with this horrible condition. X
