What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a chronic disease that can affect many parts of the body, including the skin, joints, and other tissues. Today, psoriasis affects approximately 1 million people in Canada.
Psoriasis seems to affect men and women almost equally. Early-onset psoriasis can occur before the age of 40 and is the most common type, with peak onset in those who are 16 to 22 years of age.
While late-onset psoriasis occurs in people over the age of 40, with a peak age of onset between 57 and 60 years. Symptoms tend to be milder than in those with earlier onset.
