What can you do to inform others about psoriasis?

ANSWER

If you have psoriasis, you can help put an end to confusion and misunderstandings about the disease by talking openly with friends, family, and co-workers. If you know people who have it, make sure they know that their condition doesn't affect your opinion of them or make you not want to be around them.
