    I suffer from psoriasis and people think "oh it just makes your skin itchy and scaly" but its so much more. Its an autoimmune disease, not just a skin problem and it often leads to a specific form of arthritis and can affect your nails too, which it has for me. Its unsightly, itchy, painful, it spreads and is more than what people often think it is.Sucks there's no cure for it

    I also have bowel problems too but at least those kind of conditions are more understood by most people than psoriasis.

    I've had it bad; so yes. I've pretty grown out of it with just a few patches / spots on my thighs.

    Have you considered making a survey on a site like SurveyMonkey and linking it here? I'm sure a fair few people would be willing to respond (I know I would). You could also take advantage of TSRs poll function.

    As far as I go, I am no longer a student (would have just finished uni, but had to drop out for medical reasons). I do have a few health conditions though. I am/ have been diagnosed with:

    Eczema (in my ears of all places!)
    Mild acne
    IBS
    Autoimmune Hypothyroidism
    Vitamin D deficiency
    Past Mental health issues (Depression and OCD)
    ADD and Dyslexia
    I think that's it (and we are currently looking into if I have further issues)

    I also know/ have known people in education with various issues like eczema, arthritis, hay fever, asthma, depression, severe acne etc.
    You'll often find that a lot more people than you would have thought have some form of health issue, even with young people.

    what were you planning on doing in terms of your research? Your question is somewhat vague.
