PsA Action Month

Have you been diagnosed with psoriasis? About 1 in 3 people with psoriasis develop psoriatic arthritis.

PsA is a form of arthritis. If not treated, it can lead to permanent damage to your joints and bones. Getting diagnosed and beginning treatment as soon as possible can prevent lasting damage.

Screen for PsA

Get ahead of PsA by screening with the PEST (Psoriasis Epidemiology Screening Tool). Be sure to complete the screener every six months and talk to your health care provider about your results to prevent future joint damage.
