Yoana Gaydova

Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition that affects many people worldwide. Although it can occur on different parts of your body, having psoriasis on the hands is very annoying. If you're struggling with psoriasis on your hands, it's not surprising to feel frustrated or self-conscious. Hands are our most used tools and therefore it is essential to keep them in top condition. Fortunately, there are several treatment options available today that can at least alleviate the pain.

In this blog we dive into the world of psoriasis treatments specifically aimed at the hands. We answer questions such as 'how do you recognize early psoriasis?' and 'what to do about psoriasis on the hands?'. In this article we delve deeper into these questions and provide insight into the treatment of psoriasis on the hands.


How do you recognize early psoriasis?

Recognizing early psoriasis is crucial for timely and effective treatment. Psoriasis often starts innocently. Think of small and red bumps, which gradually grow until they form into scaly, silvery spots.

Psoriasis plaques

These spots due to psoriasis, also called plaques , may itch, burn or feel painful. Unlike eczema on hands, psoriasis plaques are more visible where it begins and ends. Dry, cracked skin and even bleeding can occur due to scratching or the dryness of psoriasis plaques.

In addition to the symptoms on the skin of the hands, you may also experience unpleasant changes in the nails. Thickening, discoloration or the appearance of small dents in the nails are common. It is important to remember that psoriasis symptoms can vary from person to person.

If you suspect that you have signs of psoriasis, it is advisable to consult a dermatologist as soon as possible for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment. Watch an informative video below on how to recognize early psoriasis:

How do you get psoriasis on the hands?

Psoriasis can be triggered by various factors. Stress is a known culprit of psoriasis. It can not only cause an outbreak of psoriasis on the hands, but also increase the severity of the symptoms. Stress causes inflammatory responses in the body, which can eventually lead to the formation of psoriasis.

In addition, certain medications, such as beta blockers, lithium and antimalarial drugs, can worsen psoriasis or cause new outbreaks. It is therefore always advisable to consult with a doctor if you suspect that a medication is affecting your symptoms. Skin lesions, such as cuts and scrapes, can also lead to psoriasis.

But once you have psoriasis on your hands, the damage is already done. That's why we're going to quickly run through what options are available for your hands when it comes to treating psoriasis.
