Evidence for therapy is lacking, and many currently employed systemic therapeutics carry risks of significant side effects, without specifically targeting disease etiology which includes the aggregation of neutrophils.

Most patients with palmoplantar pustulosis have no evidence of psoriasis elsewhere. Nevertheless, according to a recent review from the Cochrane Library, there is no evidence that smoking. There is little hard evidence for the efficacy of any treatment and no published guidelines for its management. The aim of this review is to challenge dermatologists to consider alternative management strategies for PPP and design clinical trials that will enable the development of useful therapeutic guidelines. Efficacy of excimer light therapy (308?nm) for palmoplantar pustulosis with the induction of circulating regulatory T cells.

Does the vehicle preparation (e. Treatments for chronic palmoplantar pustulosis (a skin disease where repeated crops of painful yellow pus spots form on the palms and soles).
