Our Richardson, TX foot doctor office provides services to treat all different kinds of foot and ankle issues for our patients. Whereas many people are quick to think about visiting a podiatrist to receive care for heel pain or a foot or ankle sports injury, we are also here to provide treatment for nail and skin conditions that affect the feet, including psoriasis.
Those who are only somewhat familiar with the condition might not be quick to associate it with lower limbs, but those who experience the symptoms of psoriasis will assure you that it certainly happens! Knowing the signs of this skin condition can help you understand when it is time to seek treatment here at Richardson Podiatry Center.
The signs and symptoms of do tend to vary from person to person, but some of the more common ones include:
- Burning, soreness, and itching sensations
- Dry and cracked skin that is susceptible to bleeding
- Nails that are ridged, thickened, or pitted
- Reddened patches of skin that are covered by silvery scales
- Small, scaling spots (particularly for young patients)
- Stiff, swollen joints
We always recommend that diabetic patients inspect their feet on a daily basis, but it is a good idea for anyone to keep tabs on their lower limbs. If you happen to notice any of the signs or symptoms of psoriasis on your feet, be sure to contact us so we can provide the care you need!
