Psoriasis on the Feet

 

What is psoriasis?

 

Psoriasis varies in its appearance and severity.  It can be recognised by its clear red plaques.  The cause is often unknown but it is often seen in family medical history.

 

What will I see?

 

On the soles of the feet the plaques of skin can be thick and scaly.

 

Around 25% of people with psoriasis have affected.  They can become thickened and flaky.

 

In some cases yellow pustules can be seen on the palm of the hands and soles of the feet (palmoplantar pustulosis).

 

When do I seek help?

 

It is worth making an appointment with your General Practitioner who can provide a diagnosis, agree a care plan and refer you to a specialist if appropriate.  This may include topical or tablet medication and phototherapy.
