Psoriasis On Feet & Hands

Psoriasis On Feet & Hands

I've had psoriasis for 58 yrs but only in the last few months on my feet & hands.They are so dry,that the skin splits & bleeds.Creams I use do not help.I am exhausted all the time & my back ,ankles,& feet ache ,the GP does not think it is psoriiasis because my inflammatory markers weren't up.I just want to know what's wrong with my body but I just feel I'm making a fuss about nothing.What advise can anyone give me ?

I just went to retinal doctor because of signs of macro degentration. That is side affect of my medicine I take for lupus, but doctor said I don't have to worry unless 10 years or more on medicine which at 82 don't think it will be problem. More concern because my mother and aunt had it and I don't want to pass it on to my family. Hope you all are having beautiful fall day.

My rheumatologist told me at least I'm old when I got lupus and psoriasis arthritis now, I know why. I was 80 when diagnosed, I read about all the people that have had to live with it for years, so far, the arthritis part is the worst, but the lupus might be affecting my eyes. Hang in there

You need to see dermatologist to diagnose the problem. Hope you are having better day.

I am fed up of the lack of support for elderly people who have arthritis. When I was young my Psoriasis really affected my mental health and led to me hating my body. My lack of mobility now means I'm mostly at home.
