Psoriasis and Social Media

Written by Victoria Louise Crump-Haill – Digital Strategist/Account Director‏

Psoriasis patients are using social media to easily engage not only with others who suffer from the same condition but also with doctors and professionals who are able to offer advice and tips. From the graph below you can see how high daily activity surrounding psoriasis is:

“Psoriasis is a serious disease that impacts the individual physically, socially, financially, and psychologically. The more that people with psoriasis are able to connect with other and find support through platforms like social media, the less isolating the disease can be.”

Interestingly, surveyed psoriasis patients tend to rely on communities more for practical advice related to their disease rather than emotional support. About 8 in 10 say they used psoriasis social media because they wanted to read how others managed the disease as well as to get tips and ideas that they couldn’t find elsewhere.
