Launch of booklet about psoriasis and children

The Irish Skin Foundation has launched a new ‘What you need to know about your child’s psoriasis’ booklet for World Psoriasis Day 2016 and has been prepared by people with psoriasis, dermatology nurses and consultant dermatologists to help you understand your child’s condition.

The Booklet explains what psoriasis is, how it affects children, how it can be treated, and how parents, teachers, and friends can help children to deal with everyday situations. For older children, we have a version which includes a story about Aoife, a girl with psoriasis. You may find reading Aoife’s story with your child a helpful way to talk about dealing with some of the challenges that children with psoriasis may experience.

You can download the booklet and view the video at the ISF website.
