How Psoriasis Affects Men and Women Differently
Psoriasis is just as common in men as it is in women. But that doesn’t say much about the actual experience.
With psoriasis, there are many factors to consider, including triggers, associated conditions, disease severity, and treatment preferences. When it comes to these factors, men and women experience psoriasis differently.
Known triggers for psoriasis include smoking, weather, allergies, stress, infections, certain medications, and cuts and burns. For both men and women, it's how your body responds to triggers like these that can cause your psoriasis to flare up.
