Had this for many years.

Posted , 5 users are following.

As the title says I had this problem for many years. When I was child I had it also on my feet I could barely walk. I have visited many doctors in my country but none of them gave diagnosis. They prescribed me skin cremes with corticosteroids. That would help for some time but it would eventually return. Sometimes those things are gone by them self but I can't relate it to anything I do. It passed on my feet by it self and never returned but my finger tips are covered in those dots, lumps... Anyone knows what those are and how to treat this conditionimageimageimage

    I remember having the same years ago , it was seasonal and then go away with the cold.

    An antifungal cream could minimize it

      You are thinking of dyshidrosis, but in my case this doesn't go away with cold weather, it's always same, come and goes with not relation to time of the year.

    I have the same. Feet are ok now, but fingers and palms still affected. I was diagnosed by a dermatologist with palmer plantar pustular psoriasis. If you can see a specialist to get a proper diagnosis then do it. Corticostetoids are not strong enough. Keep away from harsh chemical, by using gloves. Try non perfumed soaps, moisturisers etc. Good luck.

      I already use gloves a lot, cotton gloves an over cotton gloves i use latex gloves. There is not other way of doing anything that includes any kind of chemicals.

    i hope its not psoriasis. ask your derm to take a skin biopsy for a diagnosis.that way you will know for sure. if it is psoriasis, i use steroid creams spairingly to clear it up . most derms start with steroid creams. its called palm psoriasis and can also effect the bottom of the feet. there are tar creams for psoriasis available otc. also light treatment from derm as well as other topical treatments. sorian cream very helpful and demards, and bio drugs.

    use hand creams aveno, and skin moisturizers and protect from infections. use only natural soaps with no chemicals especially sodium laurl sulfate. it's in everything and can cause serious issues . wear gloves keep hands free from water and harsh chemicals while cleaning tasks sometimes can be harsh on hands.

    sometimes combinations of these often work better than one treatment alone. Sometimes doctors suggest alternating or using topical corticosteroids with a type of vitamin D called calcipotriene. This medicine should not be used on the face, so be sure to wear gloves when applying to your hands and feet in order to avoid getting it on your face later. see NPA national psoriasis association for more info.

    good luck.
