Do you find yourself pulling on long sleeved garments even when it's sweltering outdoors? Do you avoid social gatherings? Do you chew your fingernails down to the quick just so you won't scratch until you bleed?
Well, if you can relate then chances are that you suffer from eczema or psoriasis.
Years ago there was a specific brand of shampoo that used the phrase "The Heartbreak of Psoriasis" to advertise their product. That phrase came to represent many situations in life that are seemingly uncontrollable.
Many people who suffer from eczema and psoriasis feel as though they are in a never-ending uncontrollable situation. Because there is no "cure" they suffer from embarrassment which can lead to lack of self-esteem and self-worth.
