Nature: Palmoplantar pustulosis is a difficult-to-treat skin condition that resembles psoriasis. It occurs only on the palms of the hands and the soles of the feet. The skin blisters and then forms a scaly rash. It occurs almost exclusively in smokers and does not necessarily go away when the patient stops smoking.
