Re: Palmo Plantar Psoriasis

Cbmorgan,
Sorry to hear you are also in pain with this.
I do not smoke now and haven't done for over 6 years.When I first had the problem arise at 17 I did smoke and was told this was one of the factors in causing the problem but as I say I don't smoke now and still get it.
To be honest coal tar only helps with keeping the cracks from being painful I don't think it is a cure. It is also very messy and very smelly. You should be able to get it from your doctor.
I will say that it is important not to put anything too scented on them as this can make the problem worse and I find bubble bath and soap can make the problem flare terribly.
How long have you had the problem and if you don't mind me asking how old are you and when it started?
Khonsu look forward to hearing more from you, yes I also wrap my feet in plastic bags to get the best result. Not very pleasant but the only way I can guarantee being able to walk in the morning without agonising cracks.
