Myth: Psoriasis only affects the skin


People commonly assume psoriasis only affects what they can see — the surface of the skin. However, psoriasis can go a lot deeper, even affecting some people’s joints. In fact, psoriatic arthritis can cause joint swelling and stiffness in addition to skin plaques, and even people with really mild plaques can have severe, debilitating arthritis. #WorldPsoriasisAwarenessMonth #psoriasismyths #skincondition #itchyskin
