Expat Health Insurance News: Psoriasis 'requires psychological treatment'

Expat health insurance might be something for people with psoriasis to consider.

According to Dr Linda Papadopoulos, psychologist and academic author, people who are suffering from the skin problem often require psychological help.

However, doctors tend to feel pressed for time and are not able to fully discuss the ways in which a person's life is affected by the condition.

Indeed, a recent survey found that 94 per cent of GPs questioned did not have enough time to discuss matters in full with their patients.

Dr Papadopoulos commented on the problems experienced by psoriasis sufferers: "You feel a sense of helplessness; your body is doing something and you can't control it.

"Lack of control is a big thing with any illness, but when it comes to conditions that everyone can see, that requires a whole new set of skills psychologically."
