Psoriasis can be an isolating condition, but knowing that 7.4 million Americans also have this condition can make living with it a little easier. It’s also helpful to surround yourself with the right kinds of support.

Healthline’s Living with Psoriasis Facebook community, with 28,000+ members as of 2020, is one place to get exactly that. In 2016, we asked our members how they were living with this condition and what their relationship with their psoriasis doctor looked like.
