Dear Curious

In some cases of psoriasis or other autoimmune disorders there is certainly a correlation between autoimmune disorders and sperm production. Also the treatment for psoriasis in some patients may result in changes in overall hormonal balance and therefore as a secondary effect may alter negatively on sperm production.
