What is Palmoplantar Psoriasis?
Palmoplantar psoriasis is a form of plaque psoriasis that affects the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. The most common symptom is redness and itching, but thickening and scaling can also occur on the skin.
Palmoplantar psoriasis is caused by an overactive immune system. The antibodies in the body mistake healthy skin cells for dead ones and attack them. Psoriatic inflammation begins on the palms and soles of the feet and can spread to other parts of the body
The disease usually flares up over time, but treatments are available that can bring it under control again. One way to treat palmoplantar psoriasis is with a process called phototherapy, which exposes people to ultraviolet light in order to suppress the body’s immune response.
What Are Symptoms of Palmoplantar Psoriasis?
Palmoplantar psoriasis can occur as part of more general plaque psoriasis, or it may only affect the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet.
The symptoms include:
- well-defined areas of raised, thickened skin
- redness and scaling
- an itching and burning sensation
- cracking and bleeding

- skin changes on up to one-tenth of the rest of the body, due to general plaque psoriasis
- pitting, ridging, and thickening of the nails, also due to general plaque psoriasis

In palmoplantar psoriasis, the plaques affect the skin of the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet.
