Diagnosing & Treating Psoriatic Disease E-Kit

Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis (PsA) can be complicated to recognize, and therefore challenging for a health care provider to diagnose. Psoriatic disease can also be difficult to treat because of the locations in which it can appear. Did you know psoriasis can appear in and around the mouth, on skin around the eyes, and even in the ears? It is true. And it may surprise you to know that PsA can appear in the jaw or that nail psoriasis is a risk factor for PsA. 

The challenges of diagnosing and treating psoriatic disease are not insurmountable. Research shows that when you take an active role in your own health care, you are more likely to experience better health outcomes. 

With our free Diagnosing and Treating Psoriatic Disease E-Kit, you can learn to recognize the less well known symptoms or locations of psoriatic disease, and get information on how to take a more active role in your health care. 

Request your free e-kit, which includes:

  • Hard to Diagnose & Treat Quick Guide
  • Take an Active Role in Your Health Care Booklet
  • And lots of helpful information on recognizing and managing psoriatic disease

(An NPF Patient Navigator will respond to your request within approximately 3 business days.)
