Does smoking influence psoriasis?

Yes, it does and only negatively! Some forms of psoriasis are said to be triggered by smoking. There is form of psoriasis that is called Andrews-Barber whereby the pustules only show themselves at feet and or hands. This form occurs more often in women and is being associated with smoking. Many studies have examined the connection between smoking and psoriasis, and although it is clear that a positive and significant association exists, it is not nearly as strong as the association between smoking and PPP. Studies found an increased incidence of smokers among psoriatic patients, but the connection between smoking and psoriasis is not understood fully.
