Psoriasis… the Silent Disabler

For example, psoriasis is the uncontrolled overproduction of skin cells, which is eerily similar to the ravages of cancer. So much so that research suggests people afflicted with psoriasis may be at greater risk of developing cancer in their lifetime.

Psoriasis can also lead to psoriatic arthritis, a condition the CEO, Keith Loo, has suffered from since 2018 (and strongly influenced the launch of this platform). If you have never suffered from arthritis, pray that you never do. If psoriasis can be described as “quasi cancer” then arthritis is “quasi Lou Gehrig’s Disease (ALS),” a debilitating and painful condition that makes it difficult to move.

So, next time you see someone with a scaly patch, please understand that they are in much more pain than you can possibly imagine.
