Palmoplantar pustulosis, affects left foot, big toenails, suffering from watery right eye. Are these two conditions connected?

i was diagnosed with palmoplantar pustulosis about a year and a half ago which mainly affects the sole of my left foot and also my big toenails. At roughly the same time i began suffering from a watery right eye which i have had checked by an opthalmologist who found nothing.I find this most inconvenient and wonder if there could be a connection between the two conditions. many thanks

Thanks for writing to us.
Both the conditions may be related to an autoimmune disorder. A detailed blood investigations and a physical examination can find out the correlation. Dry eyes causing the watering is more commonly related to such disorders.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

There is no any connection with palmoplanter pustulosis directly but sometimes condition like Reiters syndrome may present it. Tell me more about any history of sexual transmitted disease? Or lesion on your genitals?
