Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin condition. The principle feature of the disease is increased turnover of the skin. The feet are commonly involved in psoriasis. It can affect either the skin or nails.
The role of the Podiatrist is aimed at treating these secondary complications associated with psoriasis and eczema. Affected dystrophic nails must be cut and ground appropriately. The thickness of all calluses and fissures must be reduced to prevent pain and discomfort. Please consult one of our Podiatrists for further treatment.
