Gone are the days of writing your medication on a piece of paper to stick in your wallet to later get thrown out. Now, there’s an app (and more) for that!Here are some proven ways to stay on top of your psoriasis medication and treatment plan.

Talking with mentor.

Find a mentor

NPF Mentor Program:. The best thing you can do when you have a chronic disease like psoriasis is talk to someone who is going through the exact same thing. Mentors are a sounding board for those newly diagnosed, or going through a hard time. Mentors offer emotional advice, give support on medication and so much more. The NPF Mentor program can match you with a mentor in your area who has psoriasis. Find one in your area now.
