Psoriasis is a common and sometimes painful skin condition affecting more than 1. 5 million people in Britain. Brought to most people's attention in Dennis Potter's THE SINGING DETECTIVE, it can vary in severity from simply being a mild nuisance to being so bad that the sufferer has to be admitted to hospital. With no known longterm cure, this comprehensive guide seeks to give practical help to all age groups, describes the different types of psoriasis and lists the possible causes. Following the style established by Jenny Lewis's three previous titles, THE PSORIASIS HANDBOOK contains invaluable case histories showing how individuals cope with psoriasis, as well as the various treatments available. Packed with essential information, THE PSORIASIS HANDBOOK is THE guide for suffers, friends and relations.
