Psoriasis is a very common skin condition, genetically predisposed, and its formation involves various unknown triggering factors such as psychological trauma, infection, or medications. The inheritance pattern of the disease is not fully understood, but it is believed that individuals must be phenotypically predisposed.
Psoriasis can manifest with just a few coin-sized lesions, featuring thickened, red skin covered with whitish, thick scales. It most commonly occurs on the elbows and knees, the outer sides of the extremities, and can also be found on the feet and nails. It may be accompanied by frequent itching in a small percentage of affected individuals. In contrast to this description, in some people, plaques may appear all over the body, including the face and scalp, sometimes accompanied by sterile pustules.
The therapeutic approach to treating psoriasis must be different for each patient depending on the form and extent of the condition.
In addition to all the psoriasis treatment methods (corticosteroid preparations, UV lamps, etc.), Foot Center also offers specialized medical pedicures in strictly controlled hygienic conditions. These pedicures remove all layers of dead skin from the feet and nails. This process effectively prepares the skin for the application of creams and various products intended for the treatment of psoriasis, both on the nails and skin, and helps prevent skin damage and the development of complications.
Biogama cream – for minor skin and nail changes. It is suitable to use a cream that also contains the microflora Pythium Oligandrum. The cream reduces the inflammatory process of the skin of the feet and nail plate, its peeling, and separation.
Based on our long-standing experience in treating psoriasis of the nails and feet, the best results have been achieved with a combination of Biodelta baths and Biogama cream, preceded by a properly performed medical pedicure.
