Psoriasis mainly affects the skin and is quite common as it affects 1-3% of the general population. Therefore, 80-120 million patients worldwide suffer from psoriasis and approximately 200,000 patients in Greece. It occurs equally in both sexes, mainly in young people. More often between the ages of 15-35.

Psoriasis is not a contagious disease, it is not transmitted by touching the skin or clothes of the sufferer, nor is it the result of poor personal hygiene, as is often believed. Psoriasis is the result of a combination of genetic predisposition and dysfunction of the body’s immune system.

Treatments for psoriasis include topical treatments (application of drugs to the skin), phototherapy (use of ultraviolet radiation with or without oral medications), systemic treatments (oral medications) and, in recent years, biotechnology drugs, biological agents (injectable drugs). Factors influencing treatment choice are the type of psoriasis, the severity of the disease, the location of the psoriatic rash, the age, the patient’s history, the emotional state in relation to the disease, and the effect on his or her quality of life.
