Coping

Does P on the palm of your hands get the same kind of skin build up & flake? My son has a red patch on the palm of his hand that's been there for the past week. It has no flaky skin at all but it is raised. I sure Hope he doesn't get this 😔

Just guessing but it could be that the "qualities" of plaque will vary depending on if it's more, or less, static skin, eg, the skin on your palms moves all day as you use your hands, but the skin on your chest for example, tends to be more static. If that makes sense. Plaques may not build as well on busy skin.

My palms are the worst afflicted area. Yes, thick scaling, cracking and painful😢

Makes total sense James-- I sure Hope it's something else.

Will---yes you did read that, 2 weeks ago tomorrow. It's his opposite hand that has the red patch. He says it's not itchy, but it hurts.

Oooo Gail, I can only imagine how painful that would be. I've only had it on the top of my hands. I sure Hope you can find some relief soon 💜 I was browsing a Moringa website and noticed they have Moringa Oil--I was pretty excited. I hope to find some at our health food store. I'd love to make a homemade salve with it. I bet it would be so soothing!! Sending you healing thoughts 💜

I get pustule psoriasis on my palms and the soles of my feet, they are like little pimples with puss in them and they itch and I get like circles of plaque and they are not thick, looks more like circles of dry skin but on my feet the patches of plaque psoriasis gets very thick and scaley, very hard but since I have been soaking them in Epsom salts and have a strict regime of moisturising them afterwards they are really smooth and soft now but I still get hundreds of tiny pustules but they don't itch and when they have run their course they turn brown. Have you looked at the pictures on google as there are loads of different types. From time to time I get eczema and that is bright red and raised and I can get rid of that with E45. I hope for his sake MishLyn that it isn't P, sending Hugs to both of you.

I guess I'm basing it on my own situation. The plaque on my chest and back gets thick as rhino skin sometimes where as behind my ears, where my specs rattle around, the soles of my feet and my genital area (the motion of walking around, please, get your mind out the gutter) are busier areas so plaques there are finer and more easily dealt with.

They almost look pimply Janice. I have not looked at Google.. I'm suppose I should tho. I think I'm scared to have that diagnosis for him. We brought him to emerge on Friday. I was exposed to hand foot and mouth disease and wanted to rule that out as I could have been a carrier. Luckily, it is not. The Dr said probably poison ivy or poison oak...but it is not spreading and not itchy. We will see out GP this week if no improvement.
Thanks for all the insight and tips everyone!

Unfortunately mine has.
I’ve discovered that if I avoid water the plaque is not as severe

When my hands were bad I had the whole lot. Scaly and pustules and very dry cracked skin. It would occasionally bleed and was a bit painful. Now I occasionally get a small red patch with a bit of dry skin that peels. I treat it and it goes away almost immediately.

I've found the palms of my hands would crack, not like typical dry skin cracks, but rather where you can lift the skin up.


Gail
Gail @GiGi

Harold, mine too, and that thick lifted skin snags on things and OUCH!

Jack, what are you using to clear up your problem areas?


Jeri
Jeri @jeri

My palms will start with really itchy dots thst rise from under the skin. They swell until the skin cracks. The parts that perl off are really thick snd leave sore hands.


Julie
Julie @jul

Jack what treatment do you use?


Jack
Jack @jack3

Sorry for being missing for so long I had major computer problems. I used an aromatherapy oil mix. 10ml base oil (primrose etc) 3 drops lavender, 3 drops camomile and 2 drops burgamot. it works very well for me. Completely cleared up in a short while and when I do get a new patch a couple of drops sorts it out in a day or 2.
