I would love to get some research on how many students have the following heath issues OR know of anyone with these conditions:
Acne, any skin condition (psoriasis, eczema, dry skin etc), Stomach issues (IBS, Crohn's etc), Mobility problems, Weight Management (weight loss/or gain), Sport injuries/recovery, Immunity (overall health/immune system/hay fever/allergies etc)
Who has animals, with any health issues or wounds?
Thanks for your help

Moved to health

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.

Currently just hypothyroidism for me but I had anaemia, bulimia nervosa, scoliosis oh and I do have acne so that's nice too

My friend has psoriasis and got bullied when he was younger but has learnt to ignore it really well
