Living with psoriatic arthritis

The pain and discomfort of the red, scaly skin patches of psoriasis as well as the joint pain, swelling and stiffness of psoriatic arthritis can have a negative impact on your daily life, making even your regular, daily activities difficult.1,2

If you think you may have some of the symptoms commonly associated with psoriatic arthritis, complete the symptom checker and talk to your doctor about your results.

If you have psoriasis – or if you have family members with psoriasis or arthritis – but you don’t have joint symptoms, make sure you talk to your doctor about it anyway.3 If you then develop joint symptoms, it will make it easier for your doctor to connect your symptoms and refer you to a specialist for further investigation and diagnosis.1
