PSORIASIS ON FEET
Psoriasis on feet affects millions of people each day and Every day several new cases are reported with mild or several symptoms. It is painful but it becomes challenging when it comes out on your body parts and becomes a task to handle because feet are always mobile and the itchy burning patches become a great deal to handle. It leaves red patches over the affected areas and Those patches are itchy and produce burning sensations and puss-filled bristles.
Usually, psoriasis on the feet is plaque psoriasis. Plaque psoriasis leaves dark red patches over the area and is extremely painful and itchy. Yet at times psoriasis on feet is often mistaken with a disease named ‘athlete’s feet’, though both the diseases are very different from each other but are often confused with the appearance. The athlete’s feet are a fungal infection where psoriasis is an autoimmune disease. They both differ from each other in terms of size, location, pain, nail coloring, and stiffness. Identifying psoriasis is mandatary lest it may result in complications and increase the severity of the disease. Wrong treatment or late diagnosis results in scattered patches that are painful and becomes difficult to cure.
Our feet are more exposed to outer surfaces and they often bang into harder surfaces which becomes the prime reason for increasing complications while treatment. The feet are filled with dry and scaly patches and The skin between the toes is sensitive and It is prone to cracking, peeling, and bleeding but It leaves an impact on the toenails too. The nails turn yellow and become weak. They deform and break automatically. Early identification of psoriasis is vital because once the symptoms worse they turn into palmoplantar psoriasis. Palmoplantar psoriasis is a rare type of hand and feet psoriasis which results in worse wounds and decreases the scope of cure of the disease.
Psoriasis is not curable, lest some home remedies, or Ayurveda medicines help in controlling the symptoms and curing it gradually. Psoriasis on feet can be controlled with light treatment. Light treatments include treating the affected area through UV radiation. These light treatments incur huge medical costs and do not guarantee the complete cure of the disease. They are also accompanied by heavy oral medications and a bunch of ointments. Aloe vera and vitamin D are the most recommended for treating the red itchy patches. They moist the skin and provides relief from pain and burning sensations.
