Porokeratosis is a kind of skin disease which mainly affects the feet of a person. It is disorder in which skin lesions occur in the person’s feet and this disease can happen to people of all ages, even though the majority of the sufferers are children under the age of 12.  This disease is passed on from one generation to another, as it is a hereditary disease. If no one in your family ever had Porokeratosis, chances are that you will never have it as well. The condition of the patient suffering from this is very relative, in some patients the disease does not cause any irritation or pain, while in others, it might be the cause of itching and other irritations.

Normally, skin lesions are the first sign of this disease and the skin may even become bumpy (the bumps are referred to as callous). They can easily start at any particular part of the person’s foot and if they are not treated on time, they might spread to other parts of the person’s foot as well. Some people often resort to cutting off the lesions, to get rid of Porokeratosis; however that is only a temporary solution, as the lesions may appear again.

Permanent Treatment of Porokeratosis Foot

The permanent treatment of this skin condition can involve a process called cryotherapy in which, liquid nitrogen is used to close the blood vessels which give rise to the lesions in the foot. However, this treatment may be a bit expensive for most people, even though it is the fastest way to treat this skin condition.

Treatment can also involves using different drugs and medications and these drugs are given based on the condition of the patient, the lesions’ size, the risk involved with it and the preference of the patient. The different medications that can be used are:

  • Topical 5 fluorouracil, which can work in all types of this disease.
  • Vitamin D 3 analogues like tacalcitol & calcipotriol can be effective in this disease, if taken for a period of 3 to 6 months.
  • Immuno Modulators – in some patients (those who have weak immune systems), these drugs can boast the immune system and help them in treating the disease. Creams with 5 % imiquimod content are effective in this regard.
  • Oral Retinods – isotretinoin, acitretin, etretinate and other oral retinods can help the lesions from becoming malignant, and eventually remove them for good.
