Health Tip: Soothing Psoriasis on the Feet
(HealthDay News) -- Psoriasis causes red, itchy skin plaques that commonly affect the bottoms of the feet.
The American Podiatric Medical Association suggests how to help manage the condition:
- Soak feet in an oatmeal bath.
- Regularly apply a hypoallergenic moisturizing lotion.
- Avoid stress.
- Don't drink alcohol.
- Consider light therapy if your doctor recommends it.
- See a podiatrist if the psoriasis doesn't improve with at-home care.
