Is there a saint that suffered from psoriasis?

Do you know of any saint that suffered from psoriasis or a similar skin disease?

I don’t know of a saint who specifically suffered from psoriasis, but here is a list of patron saints for skin diseases. You might also consider Bd. Kateri Tekakwitha, who survived smallpox as a child and lived with skin blemishes from the smallpox for the rest of her life.
