In brief: Not always
People with psoriasis can often have it treated effectively.
There are some who have greater problems such as arthritis. It can run in families and there can be risks of other medical problems called co-morbidities. Some people have more difficult to treat psoriasis and there are new biological medications that can also help. Careful diagnosis and treatment are important.
