...feeling sad Chel @chel


I have palmoplantar pustulosis and I wonder if someone else has it and how they keep from spreading? I will almost get it cured and it start up again.

Hi Chel, I have not experienced this type of psoriasis. I did a google search and just learned that another name for palmoplantar pustulosis is pustular psoriasis. I thought they were 2 separate types. If you look in the themes section for pustular psoriasis you will find some great posts from others and what has worked for them. Welcome to Flaym!!

I just wondered if someone else had ideas. I use my steroid cream, Vaseline and Epsom salt baths. Plus drink water all day long

Welcome Chel! I haven't had this type of p but I think like any type of psoriasis it comes down to a form of inflammation in the body. If you can find ways to cut down your inflammation maybe you could also cut down your chances of it spreading...

I was given a medical Marijuana prescription in early December to help with pain in my legs. I started taking CBD oil orally and noticed the psoriasis on my hands was clearing up. My hands have been totally clear since January 1st. I haven’t used my steroid cream since end of December. I’m sooo amazed! My hands have only cleared once in 4 years and for only a week. I wish I could post photos. Fingers crossed this isn’t just a fluke! Hang in there Chel.

Did the cbd oil have any other effect on you?
