Psoriasis: Treatment and Tips During the Holidays

The holidays bring joy, but also cold weather and stress.

Keeping Warm and Camouflaging Psoriasis During the Holiday Season

  • If you have psoriasis on your scalp that is prone to flaking, wear lighter colored tops and scarves to help disguise any white flecks that do fall.
