An estimated 125 million people worldwide live with psoriasis.1 It is a common, chronic, immune-mediated, inflammatory disease that primarily involves the skin.2 The most frequently reported symptoms include thickening and scaling of the skin, itching and erythema (superficial reddening of the skin, usually in patches).2

Psoriasis can be a painful, disabling and stigmatising condition with substantial social and psychological impact on a person’s life.2 People with psoriasis, especially those with more severe symptoms, are also at increased risk of developing other serious associated conditions,3 including heart disease4,5,6 and metabolic diseases (a combination of diabetes, high blood pressure and obesity).7 Mental health complications, such as depression and anxiety, are also more common in people with psoriasis.8 According to the World Health Organization, the burden of living with psoriasis is underestimated and it urges for action to fight stigma and improve treatment.2

About atopic dermatitis

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common type of eczema that affects up to 5% of adults across the United States, Canada, Europe and Japan.9 It is a chronic, relapsing skin disease, characterized by severe itch, dry skin, persistent immune-mediated inflammation, and skin barrier defects.10

AD has a significant, negative impact on patients' well-being, primarily due to the intense itch which leads to disrupted sleep and other negative consequences.10

About chronic hand eczema

Hand eczema (HE) is a heterogeneous disease with many different causes, and ranges in severity from very mild to severe. Clinically, HE is characterized by lesioned skin on the hands that may be red, patchy, swollen, scaly, cracked, or thickened, with symptoms of itch and pain. HE is considered chronic (CHE) when it lasts for more than three months or relapses twice or more per year. Painful fissures and blisters affect a person's daily life and well-being, and can prevent manual labor, leading to significant economic loss to both individuals and society.11,12
