Health Tip: Soothing Psoriasis on the Feet
Soak your tootsies in oatmeal
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.
