Anyone Here Have Pustular Psoriasis?

Anyone Here Have Pustular Psoriasis?

I have plague psoriasis since I'm 12 and recently got pustular

A MyPsoriasisTeam Member said:

Yes, but I only get a couple of the blisters at a time anymore. I read several studies that linked pustular psoriasis to nicotine use (it's also extremely common in Asia, not sure why). I always wonder if it got better because I quit smoking. *shrugs*

I have pustular psoriasis and never smoked but heard that same thing, that it is a contributing factor. I also have Hashimoto's Thyrioditis and 'resolved' Thyroid Eye disease which is also linked to those who smoke which, of course, I do not. Not sure why I got it but thank goodness it was a mild case and now I just have a non functioning Thyroid and very dry eyes. I am sure both diseases would have been worse had I smoked.

Pustular psoriasis is a type of P that also causes blisters. It's much more common amongst smokers and some people see some improvement if they quit smoking (it doesn't make it go completely away though).
I used to smoke. I vape now (so still using nicotine - they do think it's the nicotine more than the tobacco but I think it's a little of both). When I switched my feet did get significantly better (I rarely get blisters anymore) but I still have it.

Thanks for the replies😊, I started using the enbrel injections and my plague psoriasis cleared almost fully, then I was diagnosed with pustular psoriasis so I changed to consentyx and it hasn't cleared yet it's so annoying and painful to walk 😭
