The South African Psoriasis Association

People suffering from Psoriasis encounter daily battles, when it comes to managing their condition. Which makes it, not only a skin condition, but it can affect a person’s mental state of mind as well.

At the South African Psoriasis Association (SAPSA) we’re here to help. We aim to inspire those with the condition to step out of their shadows by:

Giving them access to breakthrough information
Boosting their confidence
Supporting emotional well-being

As each of our volunteers are people with psoriasis themselves, members can be assured that their advice is sincere from their own experiences.


We need to thank Dr Gantsho and Dr Ranks Lehloenya for spending time with us at our support group meeting on Saturday 3 Sept. DR Ranks explained METABOLIC SYNDROME.Our discussion then went around how Psoriasis, because of its inflammatory nature is associated with obesity, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia and hypertension.Thus you are encouraged to have yourself screened for these risk factors and act accordingly. Our next meeting will be exciting too - see you there.
NB:- Thank you to Dr Gantsho for arranging the venue at Century Medical Suites.Thank you Dr Lehloenya for your educational talk.❤
