Psoriasis Cure Now offers 'Back to School' Resources for Parents of Children with Psoriasis
Date:9/3/2007

KENSINGTON, Md., Sept. 3 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- "Psoriasis Cure Now," a nonprofit patient advocacy group, today released updated resources to help parents of children with psoriasis as their kids head back to school. The organization offers a free fact sheet on children's psoriasis that parents can print off the internet and deliver to their child's school teacher; and it offers a free podcast interview with a leading pediatric dermatologist discussing how to treat psoriasis in children and how to help them cope with it. These resources and more are available at http://www.psoriasis-cure-now.org/psoriasiskids.php .

"Psoriasis can be tough on kids, and it's no picnic for their parents, either," said Michael Paranzino, president of Psoriasis Cure Now and someone whose psoriasis started in high school. "As children with psoriasis head back to school, these resources will help their parents 'educate the educators' about the unique challenges faced by kids with psoriasis."

The podcast interview is with Amy Paller, MD, the Walter J. Hamlin Professor and Chair of Dermatology, Professor of Pediatrics, at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine. Dr. Paller is one of the nation's leading pediatric dermatologists and an expert on psoriasis in children. She offers a wealth of information in this interview, including treatment strategies for psoriasis in children, what to tell a child's teacher about the disease, and how to address the emotional impact of psoriasis that can significantly impair a child's quality of life.

The back to school fact sheet about psoriasis in children is designed for parents to give to their child's teacher, coaches, school nurse and others who interact with their child during the school day. Hundreds of thousands of American children have psoriasis, a non-contagious disease of the immune system that causes skin cells to replicate too quickly, producing dry skin that can itch, crack, bleed and be quite painful. A recent study in the British Journal of Dermatology found that children with psoriasis report impairment in their quality of life that equals the impairment reported by children with other chronic illnesses such as epilepsy, diabetes and asthma.

Psoriasis Cure Now is also in the midst of its $10,000 psoriasis video contest, with short videos about psoriasis being accepted for three more weeks. And it is preparing for the first-ever Short Sleeve Day, nationwide on September 15th. More on all of these projects is available at their web site:
