Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It is not psoriasis. It may be palmoplanter keratosis. Kindly consult the dermatologist for the perfect diagnosis and proper treatment. Keratolytic drug like salicylic acid 12% ointment. May applied twice a day. And take Acitretin cap daily for the long time.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
