This is not a self-help web site. Consult a qualified doctor for diagnosis and treatment of psoriasis (or any other disease). This web site began as a research project, and is for educational purposes only. I am not now, nor have I ever been, a part of the medical profession. The opinions expressed on this web site are my own (Dave W.), and the authors of material referenced or linked to by this web site may or may not agree with me. I will in no way be held responsible for any loss of health, wealth, or anything else due to the use or misuse of the information presented in this web site.

The presence or absence of any treatment in no way implies endorsement or condemnation of that treatment. Endorsement or condemnation will be explicit when I get a chance to write up a review, and, once again, is my own opinion. In all cases, do your own research, educate yourself, and make your own informed choices (preferably with the help of a qualified dermatologist).

Email Policy

If you choose to send me email, I will consider that to be explicit permission to publish your email, but I will maintain your privacy (through the use of initials, for example).

If you are, and you choose to email me, I will consider that permission to use your name if I choose to publish your email online. In other words, emailing me represents an “opt-in” to use your email and your name. In no case will a correspondent’s name or other personal information be given to advertisers or used by me to advertise to you.
