Shins And Feet Psoriasis

Shins And Feet Psoriasis

What OTC can I put on broken skin on my feet and shins? My feet have deep extremely painful cracks and peeling skin. My shins have scabs and peeling skin that itch horribly.

I will be starting Humera on February 9th, which is 3 months after major spinal fusion surgery on November 9th.

Thanks in advance!

Vaseline and A&D ointment slathered on thick and cotton socks to keep it from getting all over the place.

When my feet crack I use non stick pads and neosporin and wrap with flex wrap, it helps a lot!

I'm allergic to that so I have used vaseline and covered with a pad then taped. What do you mean by flex wrap? Saran wrap?

My dermatologist has prescribed Humera, but I can't start it until 2/9. I see her again next week.

See a dermatologist so you don’t waist time and money on home remedies. Your doctor should be able to give you a referral so insurance will cover it.
