I have psoriasis on my hands and feet. Your photos of your feet look similar to mine. Walking can be very painful. On my worst days I use DuoDERM Extra Thin CGF Dressing - 4 x 4". You can get them on Amazon. They can be cut to size and applied directly to your skin. They are expensive so I make sure to cut them into just the size I need to cover my cracks and sores. They allow me to walk with practically no pain. I haven't tried Otezla or any biologics yet. I'm currently on methotrexate and have noticed improvement. Good luck to you. I feel your pain.

So sorry looks so painful! I'm in 2nd
month of Otezla and didn't notice changes until about the 3rd week. I first noticed all the redness and peeling on my hand went away. My face looks better no more red patches. My scalp was the worst with scaling, red, itching me to madness but has greatly improved with the Otezla. Try to keep up with the AM and PM doses it really makes a difference. Some side effects are nausea, lack of appetite. Have your Dr prescribe Zofran for nausea and take with the Otezla. Works very good and fast. I am loving Otezla the first thing in 30 years that has reduced my psoriasis. Nothing else worked for me. I still have some itching but not anything like it used to be. I can sleep at night!!! Blessings to you! XO

I'm on the second month on cosentyx. And it cleared almost everything up my arms my legs, my sides, knuckles it was unbearable. Especially my scalp. Otezla worked for me about 7 months, then nothing. Granted all the patches , arm legs etc. Are scares now it's just waiting for the pigment too fill back in.
