Psoriasis and social stigma
Social stigma – what is it?
The concept of stigma was introduced by a Canadian researcher and sociologist Erving Goffman. He described stigma as a situation of the individual who is disqualified from full social acceptance. It refers to a person, who is different from the regular cultural norms. There are various reasons to be banished for – religion, social status, education, skin tone, appearance etc. Health disability is one of them. Stigmatized people constantly think about how other people perceive them, how they will react, what they will think of them etc.
Psoriasis and society
Many people know no more than general information about skin diseases. Even though the psoriasis isn’t contagious, people are still cautious and suspicious to interact with psoriatic patients. Because of the lack of social attention and contact, those people may suffer from frustration or depression.
Over the last few years, social awareness becomes even stronger, and people are learning to accept every individual with special characteristics or requirements. Unfortunately, there are many activities, patients with worse skin conditions can’t do. They are avoiding public areas like pools, gyms; they can’t go to wellness center or get a massage. Generally, they don’t feel good or comfortable enough in their own skin. Unwillingly, they are becoming rejected from society and the social life itself.
Treatment, that heals
Nowadays there is plenty of eczema and psoriasis treatments on the market. Patients are trying everything to heal and relief from the pain and suffer. Choices are almost limitless – medicaments, special diet, injections, corticosteroids, etc. To find a cure which helps and don’t cause side effect is a challenge. Kartalin brings a non-hormonal solution which releases the scaly layer of the skin and eliminates psoriasis plaques. The most important thing is, that the ointment doesn’t treat just psoriasis and eczema. Its fully organic formula strengthens the immune system and treats also the causes of the problem.
After many years of development, we created a powerful formula with curing effect. Unfortunately, healing of psoriasis and eczema is not just about convalescence of visible skin conditions. Most importantly, we have to focus on patient’s psyche, self-confidence and the way how they look at themselves. This is a reason why we create a global platform, website, where people can share their experiences, write reviews and read more about the power of the nature from Siberia.
