Our Dallas and Plano foot doctor offices provide services to treat many different issues for our patients. While you may be quick to think about visiting a podiatrist to receive care for heel pain or a foot or ankle sports injury, you can also find treatment here for nail and skin conditions that affect your feet, including psoriasis.

If you are only somewhat familiar with the condition, you might not be quick to associate it with lower limbs, but those who experience the symptoms of psoriasis will assure you that it can happen anywhere on your body. Knowing the signs of this skin condition can help you understand when it is time to seek treatment from our specialists here at Dallas Podiatry Works.

The symptoms and signs of psoriasis tend to vary from person to person, but some of the more common ones include:

  • Psoriasis on the footReddened patches of skin that are covered by silvery scales
  • Dry and cracked skin that is susceptible to bleeding
  • Small, scaling spots (particularly for young patients)
  • Burning, soreness, and itching sensations
  • Stiff, swollen joints
  • Nails that are ridged, thickened, or pitted


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 these signs or symptoms of psoriasis on your feet, be sure to reach out to us here at Dallas Podiatry Works so we can provide the care you need!

Our Plano and Dallas, TX offices provide first-class foot care services for our patients from across the local communities. We can help you find relief from skin conditions that affect the feet, so give us a toll-free call at (888) 716-5283 for more information, or schedule your appointment for either of our locations online today.
