Kids & Psoriasis

With psoriasis in my family line I always have the fear just hovering in the back of my mind that perhaps my kids will inherit the same disease.  Every time I see them scratching or they get a rash my breathing gets a little faster and I obsess over looking at what they are scratching to see if it looks like psoriasis.

Fortunately so far it appears that they have inherited the appropriate gene from my wife to block whatever causes psoriasis.

Anyway I saw an article today that made me think again of my kids and psoriasis.  You can read about the study here.  I got asked to click through some pop-up boxes when I accessed the article, but in the end the article comes up.  It is “Key studies show distinctive features of pediatric psoriasis“.
