chronic psoriasis

Large red patches of dry skin, sometimes with silvery scales covered my arms, legs, and upper body. There was also a constant snowstorm of flakes falling from my scalp. I was first diagnosed in my first year at theatre school. I went to my GP who gave me the bad news: it's chronic psoriasis, and there is no cure. But you can't let it stop you from doing the things you love to do.
