August: Psoriasis Awareness Month

It's August: Psoriasis Awareness Month in the United States.

The condition affects about 8 million people in the United States.

Psoriasis is one of the most prevalent, chronic autoimmune diseases. It causes a rapid build-up of skin cells.

This leads to thick, scaly plaques that may itch or cause discomfort.

Other related symptoms include –

dry/cracked skin that may bleed,

small scaling spots,

swollen and stiff joints,


itching/burning sensation around the patches,

thick pitted nails,

and painful or swollen joints.

The skin condition can begin at any age, though the disease manifests in adulthood.

Treatment for this skin condition aims to reduce inflammation and clear the skin.

"We have a special needs daughter who needed her foot looked at. Thankful that Affinity accepted her Medicaid first of all. Staff was nice, did not have a long wait, doctor was knowledgeable and understanding with our daughter, which means a lot. She was able to get x-rays done on her foot and received the results before we left. A great place to go on short notice."
"Facility was very clean. Very short wait. The doctor and x-ray tech were great!!"
"Fast and friendly. Was in and out in about an hour, and the PA and nurses were great. Much better experience than the ER."
"The Affinity care clinic in Galveston was wonderful. I walked in Memorial Day (without an appointment) and was seen by a very courteous and helpful staff. I highly recommend them."
"My experience at this urgent care facility was a pleasant one. I brought my daughter in due to an allergic reaction. The staff members there were awesome!"
