Psoriasis clothing is clothing that has been made specifically with psoriasis and other chronic skin conditions in mind. It utilises natural fibres which are soft on the skin, help regulate body temperature in both cold and hot conditions and doesn't incorporate synthetic materials or chemicals which aggravate the skin and cause flare ups.
As many sufferers of psoriasis undergo photo or light therapy it is also important that psoriasis clothing provides excellent sun protection as skin cancer is a heightened risk, particularly for those with fair skin or a family history of skin cancer and melanoma. Sunburn can also cause psoriasis flare ups, so whilst direct sunlight in small doses is considered a positive, overexposure to UV is likely to cause an adverse reaction.
