There are many books about psoriais, from clinical textbooks to self-help guides for children. Here are some of them.

This is a list of books about psoriasis, or which mention psoriasis. Some are available through familiar Web-based book retailers, some are available only through the authors or publishers, some both. Books which I believe are unavailable are listed in a separate section near the end. Note also that academic textbooks are mixed in with popular works, alphabetically. After the book list, there is a section for book-related information.

In the interests of full disclosure, I am an “Amazon Associate.”

If you are interested in buying a book, or a video, or any other thing to be found on sites like, and you would like a portion of the purchase price to be donated to the National Psoriasis Foundation (at no extra cost to you), I suggest you visit Jerry J.’s Psoriasis Books Site. The full setup is explained on Jerry’s page, but I’d also like to emphasize here that the only ones who make any money off the links on his site are the NPF and the booksellers themselves. The only thing Jerry receives is some satisfaction from doing a good thing. You’ll receive your own personal portion of that same satisfaction with every order, in addition to the usual complimentary bookmark.

Some online booksellers have “Associates” programs, where the booksellers give “commissions” to those who link to the booksellers’ Web sites. I am an Associate. This commission doesn’t add a dime to the price you pay: you will not find Amazon prices lower if you look up the books yourself instead of following the links I provide. Any money raised will be, in part, used to support this web site.

Still, I urge you to shop around for the best deal you can find on any book. Or, given the pretty-much equal pricing between booksellers for many titles, pick your favorite, if you happen to have a favorite bookseller.

And as written above, if you would like to make a donation to the NPF by purchasing books or other items, don’t hesitate to visit Jerry J’s Psoriasis Books Site.
