Health Tip: Caring for Psoriasis on Your Feet

32

— Psoriasis causes red, scaly, itchy plaques on the skin, including the feet.

The American Podiatric Medical Association suggests these ways to soothe it:

  • Moisturize your feet regularly. Choose a moisturizer that’s hypoallergenic and non-irritating.
  • Soak feet in an oatmeal bath.
  • Ask your doctor about special light therapy.
  • Avoid psoriasis triggers, such as alcohol and exposure to dry air.
  • See a podiatrist if your foot psoriasis doesn’t improve.
