Taking Care of Psoriasis During Pregnancy
If you are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant, you may be wondering whether your pregnancy can affect your psoriasis and whether treatments can affect your developing baby. Or, perhaps your partner has psoriasis. Are there special considerations as well?
Many women find that pregnancy makes their psoriasis better, but for others it gets worse. That’s the challenge of psoriasis—it’s unpredictable. Some research suggests that women with severe psoriasis have a higher chance than women without psoriasis or with mild psoriasis of having a baby with a low birth weight.
