Pso can affect both skin and nails, so make sure you pay special attention to yours. These days, we all try to wash our hands regularly, so make sure you moisturise well.

If you have Pso plaques on your feet or toenails, make sure you keep them clean and dry by wearing merino wool socks or roomy shoes. And if you’re out and about, make sure you protect your skin from the sun. Finally, while it may be tempting to have a good scratch when you wash your hair, please make sure you don’t.10
