Finding the right shoes for palmoplantar psoriasis
About 5 percent of people with psoriasis have palmoplantar psoriasis (PPP), plaque psoriasis on the feet (or hands) that can cause heavy scaling and cracking.
“Depending on its location, even a single lesion on the foot can affect people’s ability to do their day-to-day activities, causing significant discomfort and problems walking,” said Alan Menter, M.D., chair of the Department of Dermatology at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas, Texas.
Dr. Alan Menter recommends that you should avoid flats, which provide little support. Keep in mind that cushioning reduces pressure and insoles can also add to cushioning and comfort. Wearing the correct footgear can cut down on complications and increase your comfort level.
