Psoriasis And Happiness – Psohappy The Miracle App
Psoriasis and happiness – Is Psohappy the miracle app for psoriasis sufferers? Let’s find out what it is all about in this report.
Living with psoriasis would lose 30% happiness!
According to statistics held by the World Psoriasis Happiness Report 2018, 125 million people around the planet have psoriasis. As a result, subject to many misconceptions, patients often feel stigmatized, which reinforces the consequences of the disease on their daily lives.
As a reminder, psoriasis is a severe condition of the skin that causes thick scaly patches on the skin. These plaques are due to over-stimulation of skin cell growth that no longer allows the skin to control its growth, so they appear as scratchy red patches.
Although generally the plaques show up on the upper body some cases report plaques on the genital areas, causing extreme torture for these people, both physically and mentally.
But how to define and evaluate the impact of psoriasis on their happiness and well-being? A totally unexplored subject until a recent world study was conducted by Psohappy. You can download the free app by clicking on the Amazon image.
Psoriasis and happiness
Firstly, psoriasis is a chronic disease whose fallout can be very important for the daily lives of patients. But what impact does this pathology have on happiness? Meanwhile, to address this issue, a digital innovation laboratory, LEO Innovation Lab, launched the world’s first study on the happiness of people with psoriasis.
This study, called Psohappy, began in 2016 in the USA, the United Kingdom, Denmark and Canada. Following the first results obtained, the laboratory decided in 2017 to extend Psohappy to France and Spain. In France, the main partner is France Psoriasis, the only French association dedicated to supporting people with psoriasis and / or psoriatic arthritis and their relatives.

10 key lessons
More generally, according to the World Happiness Report 2017, the daily life with psoriasis has repercussions on the quality of life and on various indicators of well-being.
From this report, the experts drew ten key lessons, which are:
- Psoriasis has repercussions on happiness. Severe psoriasis is associated in some countries with a 30% drop in happiness level. This effect is particularly pronounced in the Nordic countries, such as Denmark or Norway.
- Psoriasis affects women’s happiness more than men’s. The level of happiness is reduced respectively by 11.3% and 18.5% in men and women with severe psoriasis.
- The impact on happiness varies according to the symptoms of psoriasis: squames lead to a decrease of 11.7% on the level of happiness, against 22% in case of ambulatory difficulties (psoriatic arthritis).
- The drop in the level of happiness varies according to the area of the body affected: -7.5% for the scalp, -12.9% for the genitals.
- Stress is the predominant psychological indicator of malaise. The average level of stress exceeds that of the general population in all countries and 60% of participants say they feel daily distressed, to a moderate degree to extreme.
- The feeling of loneliness is widespread. On average, 33% of patients feel lonely, with varying levels of loneliness across countries, ranging from 21% in Portugal to 48% in the UK.
- The different levels of well-being felt vary widely by country, probably in relation to cultural factors.
- Understanding how psoriasis affects well-being could reduce differences in happiness levels. Indeed, almost half of the patients who think that the medical profession does not understand the impact of the disease on their well-being have a happiness level that is 21% lower. Conversely, more than half of the patients who feel they are understood by health professionals have a level of happiness reduced by only 3%.
- Up to 35.6% of patients with psoriasis could come out of difficult living conditions by limiting their extreme stress.
- Up to 12.9% of patients with psoriasis may no longer suffer from harsh living conditions by limiting their extreme loneliness.
Thanks to Psohappy, patients and doctors could better understand the impact of psoriasis on happiness and well-being and act together for a better quality of life.
A strong argument to encourage the maximum number of patients to participate in the study …

I had to navigate away from your website to find out what Psoriasis is as I did not know what it was. May I suggest for future readers that you put in a definition of the word so that people like me, who were clueless as to what it is, will be able to quickly glance at the definition and keep reading.
The information you provide is quite extensive and it’s encouraging to know that there is even an Android App that is available to give sufferers of this condition and opportunity to voice their unhappiness and be heard.
Your suggestions for remedies for Psoriasis sound very therapeutic and a welcome solution to providing relief from symptoms encountered from the ailment.
Thank you for the time you invested in providing this information. May many people be helped and encouraged by your post and may they truly find a deeper level of happiness through it.
Thanks very much for visiting my website and for your suggestion for improvement. You are quite right, I very often start my articles by giving a brief explanation of what psoriasis is. Wrongly assuming that the reader coming to my website would most likely have, or knew someone with psoriasis so I thought that it would be taking the reader for an ignorant, but yes, again, I agree with you, I should at least briefly explain what this condition is.
I will correct my mistake immediately and remember it for the future.
I am glad that you enjoyed the rest of my report and find it informative and I look forward to seeing you here again soon.
My former classmate has this same disease at the back of his neck, I didn’t know that he had it because he used to cover the infected part with his hairs. It wasn’t too long I discovered that he is affected with psoriasis. This boy was a jovial person while we were in high school school together but he has been a moody person since the time he was affected.
Thanks for making me know this app, I will make sure I recommend this app to him, cos I really need him to come back to his jovial lifestyle again.
Thanks very much for reading my “Psoriasis And Happiness” article Jim, and for taking the time to share your former classmate’s experience with us.
You will certainly do him a great favor as the Psohappy app. is very new so he probably doesn’t know about it yet. Also, it might be useful if you showed him this website as there are so much information that might interest him.
I wish you and your friend the best of health.

Thanks very much for sharing your experience with psoriasis Vicki, and I am glad that you had it under control to the point of it being totally off your life. You have probably achieved that by being relax (you seem to be a person that is completely relaxed).
Most psoriasis sufferers are people that are stressed. They often don’t know what stress them, they would tell you that they are not stressed as they have everything they need to be happy and relaxed, but they are stressed inside themselves, and the more they are stressed, the more their psoriasis shows, and the more it shows, the more they are stressed.
As a matter of fact, my next article will be about stress and psoriasis, as there is a lot to say about that, and it concerns many psoriasis sufferers.
Well Vicki, I can only wish that you remain psoriasis free and I look forward to seeing on this site again soon.
Thanks for this informative article! I had no idea that so many people around the world were affected by this disease. I really like your link to happiness as well and I appreciate the amount of statistical research you found to support this post. I was especially surprised to see that happiness levels corresponded to the areas of the body that are affected, but it’s wasn’t shocking to read that stress management can go a long way to helping improve the happiness levels of people with psoriasis. Overall, I found your article super informational. Thanks!
Thanks very much for visiting my website and for taking the time to post a comment on my “Psoriasis And Happiness” blog post Tucker. As a matter of fact, psoriasis cases are on the increase due to the way we are living nowadays because of the increase of stress we are experiencing in our modern way of life. The reason why my next article will be based on stress and psoriasis. I feel that it has become pressing that I write something on the subject, and trust me, there is plenty to write on that.
