I need to know more about palmar-plantar psoriasis. That is my main problem.

Hi Margo, I too have palmar-plantar psoriasis. I find it so hard to keep under control, in fact, I never really have controlled it. Maybe we can keep in touch with each other to pass on any tips/ideas we pick up and offer each other support?

I do find that apple cider vinegar helps. I soak my feet in it as often as I am able to. My toes and toenails are affected as well. This is not something that has always been with me. The hand thing is really pitiful. It almost seems like the skin turns to stone at times. I love A & D ointment, as it makes the discomfort go away overnight. I wear cotton gloves to hold the ointment close to the skin. I have been told to use superglue on the cracks on the palms and feet. I just use liquid bandage when it is very bad. I did use light therapy for several months and did not see a great improvement. Very expensive and out of network also. For me, the cold weather makes it worse. I need to try eliminating food items. I just find it very difficult to do. What have you tried that works?

I have this form, and had my first outbreak in 2005, but not diagnosed for 2 years! Am on doxiciline and nicotinamide which keeps it largely under control.

Hi Margo and Diane, I have this, and is now under control again. Had my first outbreak in 2005, which took 2 years to diagnose, and then 2 years on meds. Was completely clear until Feb 2016, when I had another outbreak, but not as bad as first time! Do either of you get really bad blisters?

I got in trouble with the school custodian once because I blew cat tail fuzz all over the classroom.
