Louise Roe of the ‘Front Roe’ talks about psoriasis and how there are treatments and support now available that can help others
Louise Roe is a noted TV host, journalist and the founder of popular lifestyle, fashion and beauty blog, The Front Roe, had been struggling with psoriasis for nearly ten years. She found herself hiding, which many people do when they get the diagnosis. However, as she relishes being honest with her 1.5 million readers, decided to own up to her battle with this disease and offer some helpful tips on how people can get the support they need to feel comfortable in their own skin.
Nearly 7.5 million Americans have psoriasis. This is an autoimmune disease that manifests itself on the skin as itchy, painful, red patches. This condition is not contagious and starts from inside the body, but given its outward presence, it tends to be a conspicuous disease that makes sufferers self-conscious and feel embarrassed.
Like many sufferers of psoriasis, Louise Roe originally tried to hide her condition. This proved especially difficult as she works in beauty and fashion. After educating herself and speaking with her doctor, she started a treatment plan that helped, but more importantly, she decided to share her story so others would know that they are not alone.
Otezla, one of the leading treatment options for psoriasis has launched the Inside Perspective campaign to help people share their stories and get comfortable in their own skin again.
Louise Roe, who was joined by Dr. Gary Goldenberg Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology at The Icahn School of Medicine spoke with Michelle Tompkins for The Hollywood Digest about her life, career, love of fashion, her struggles with psoriasis, how she got treatment, how Otezla and the Inside Perspective campaign can help others who suffer from this condition and more.
