If your psoriasis is on your hands or feet, this might cause cracking, blistering and swelling, or may take the form of ‘palmoplantar pustulosis’, which appears as small yellow bumps under the skin surface, mostly on the palms or soles; they contain fluid, but are not infectious. Any kind of psoriasis on the hands or feet can be painful and make it difficult for you to do even basic daily activities like walking or carrying things, but there are some things you can do to help deal with it.
I struggled with exercise at first, the burning/biting sensation really got to me but I’ve learnt to work through it now. I try to exercise at least 4 days a week. I just do what I’m feeling on the day, based on what my skin and joints are like. If my hands are aching, I might go for a morning walk or go on my exercise bike. If my feet are bad, I might focus on my arms with some weights. If I can’t deal with those things, I do some stretches – there’s always options.
