Abstract

Hormonal, metabolic and immunological changes occurring during pregnancy have significant effects on the function of the skin. Psoriasis is one of the most common dermatological diseases and it is known as a nonspecific dermatosis in pregnancy. The aim of this article is to present the importance of support in the course of psoriasis in pregnant women. Psoriasis may cause recurrent miscarriages, chronic hypertension, diabetes or obesity, leading to perinatal complications and premature birth. The coexistence of psoriasis and pregnancy requires emotional prophylaxis, as well as support and psychotherapeutic care. Medical staff requires knowledge of skin diseases and skills to assess a patient’s mental state.
