Alcohol consumption and psoriasis.


A study has been undertaken of the relationship between the severity of psoriasis and alcohol consumption in 100 patients with chronic plaque psoriasis. In male patients, heavy drinking, at a level liable to be detrimental to health, was found significantly more commonly in those with severe psoriasis, and alcohol-related medical or social problems were frequent. By contrast alcohol excess and alcohol-related problems were significantly less common in women irrespective of the severity of their psoriasis.
