Have you been diagnosed with psoriasis? About 30 percent of people with psoriasis develop psoriatic arthritis.

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

Get ahead of PsA by screening with the PEST (Psoriasis Epidemiology Screening Tool). Take the lead in your healthcare by completing the screener every six months and prevent future joint damage.
