Psoriasis, not only a word we all struggle to spell, but a red, flaky skin condition that affects 2% of the UK population. Similar to eczema in its look and feel, psoriasis is a skin condition that causes itchy and sore crusty patches of skin covered with silvery scales, and it can occasionally flare-up in babies and toddlers as well as adults. As part of National Psoriasis Awareness Month, we’ve taken a look at some of the best treatments that will help.
