Psoriasis associated with sexual dysfunction
People with psoriasis may be at increased risk of sexual dysfunction, particularly when they also have mood disorders or arthritis, a systematic review suggests.
Spanish researchers examined data from 28 studies with more than 52,000 psoriasis patients and more than 1.8 million people without psoriasis.
Those with psoriasis had a 5.5-fold higher risk of sexual dysfunction than people without the condition, they found.
Psoriatic arthritis was associated with a higher risk of sexual dysfunction among people with psoriasis, the study also found.
