PSORIASIS DICTIONARY FOR PATIENTS
Your guide to help you when speaking to your doctor
FINDING THE RIGHT WORDS
Psoriasis may have already affected aspects of your life but remember that you and your doctor are partners in managing your psoriasis. There is plenty of support available to help you maintain a good quality of life. Perhaps you have felt rushed or left the doctor’s office realising you haven’t discussed something that is important to you. Next time you visit your doctor, share your story and have an honest conversation about how psoriasis affects your daily life.
Finding the right words to describe your symptoms can be difficult; if you can describe your real-life experiences this can help your doctor understand exactly what you are facing, especially when the doctor’s time is limited. This dictionary will prepare you for conversations with your doctor about the care you need to live the life you wish for and deserve.
