Welcome to Psori.ch
Patients who suffer from psoriasis often feel inhibited in daily life, both personally and professionally. For example, they avoid skin-baring clothing, feel inhibited when doing sport such as swimming and avoid physical contact such as hand-shaking and embracing.
Using the slogan, “See your dermatologist. Don’t let untreated psoriasis ruin your life.” The aim is to encourage people suffering from psoriasis to talk to someone who can help them – their dermatologist.
This information website is hosted by the competence network of practising dermatologists, Switzerland (DermaNet).
The psori.ch website is in two parts: one part contains general information provided by Novartis as part of a psoriasis global awareness campaign; the other part provides medical information.
We wish to thank our sponsor, Novartis Pharma Schweiz AG for its support. Novartis Pharma Schweiz AG had no influence whatsoever on the medical part.
The sections on medical terminology and treatment of psoriasis were written by the team of Prof. Alexander Navarini, Department of Dermatology, University Hospital Basel.
