When your job becomes a problem due to psoriasis

Posted Mon 20 Mar 2017 4.57pm by Angie

Hi eveyone, has anyone had to give up there job due to psoriasis? I currently work in a care home and had to drop from full time to part time due to palma planta psoriasis on both feet. They are splitting open all the time and i can hardly walk for the pain. I have been like this now for 18 months, just wondered if anyone knows if you can get financial help for it if you can no longer work, appreciate any help on this, Angie

Hi Angie,

I have PPP too, recently diagnosed. Are you aware that this condition qualifies as a disability, would recommend you talk to citizens advice bureau regarding financial support. Also look at government websites for the blue car badge & disability benefits which might top your wages up.
